learn to sew - zip purse

It took me a while to work out how to even attach the zip foot, and I'm not 100% sure I'm doing it right still :-) And then my first seam sewed the material onto the wrong side of the zip and had to be unpicked.
At last though, success. I'm quite pleased with this first attempt and I love the way the linen looks. I have already posted links to the tutorials I used here.
