How to sew a glittery unicorn zip top tote bag

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire! 

Today I am here to show you how to sew a glittery unicorn themed tote bag with zippered top closure. For this project you will need a half yard of medium weight clear vinyl, one yard of cotton fabric, half yard of Pellon 809, 2 oz. of glitter and a 14″ separating zipper.

To begin, precut your fabric to the following dimensions:

Exterior vinyl pockets: cut two, 14″ x 19″

Vinyl zipper gusset: cut two, 8″ x 16″

Zipper binding: cut two, 6″ x 3″

Handles, cut two, 6″ x 20″

Exterior and interior body panels, cut four, 15″ x 12″

Exterior and interior side panels, cut four, 6″ x 12″

Exterior and interior base panels, cut two, 6″ x 15″

I hope you enjoy the project and will share photos of your finished bags with us on Instagram and Facebook using #sewspire and @sewspire.

I will be back next week with another inspired sewing project and then I will be on vacation.

Until we meet again, please know the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you!

XO,

Andrea
