Posted the youtube video about? Yours looks really nice. Mine looked like crap so I picked it off the first one and didn't bother with the second one.
Right now I'm working on usiny nylon for the credit card pockets and side gussets. I think there's just way too much bulk. I'm also working on a way to do the zippers so the ends look a little bit neater.
Yes, I did use the method on the video in the link. I am glad that I didn't get on it earlier Saturday, otherwise I would never have found that video before putting the wallet together. So, that turned out to be a blessing, I think. I agree about the zipper, I wish that I had used methods that I already know to put the zipper in, instead of just following the directions. I agree with you, I don't really like how the top of the zippered pocket looks following the directions of installation that she gives. I'm always hesitant to use different methods if I can't really tell for sure that there isn't some inherent reason for doing it her way. And my way would involve cutting off both sides much earlier, so, if I suddenly realized there was a reason for doing it her way, I would have had to do it over again. Now I know that her method isn't necessary I will do it the way I normally would in a free standing zippered pocket type situation.
I would love to see what you are doing with the nylon pockets and gusset, that sounds pretty cool!
I made a couple of cool projects using half of a zipper - really cool. It makes the bag stay way open. I made a small pouch with this method for my sewing clips, and made a larger zippered bag for....I'm not sure what! But I love how using the single side of a zipper allows the bag to stay open, when I'm going in and out of the pouch for the clips it really comes in handy. I will get photos of it tomorrow. Right now I can't get a good photo, my hands shake too much if I wait too long to eat.
