Sweet small purse, tutorial in English:
(ønsker du denne oppskriften på norsk gå HIT og HIT 
og for å få fine hjørner følger du linken HIT)
Helga Design, 2008.

This is the presser foot I use when I'm sewing
the zipper unto the purse.
Phaff nr 3 or the Bernina nr 5.
3   2,5 x 10 inch strips for the front.
1   7,5 x 11 inch Backing
1   7,5 x 11 inch Batting
2   1 1/4 x 7,5 inch strips for Binding
1   7,5 inch Zipper

Sew together the three strips.
Make a sandwich and
quilt as you desire.

Use a plate as a template to cut a nice curve at both side and trim.

At both sides, sew the binding with your needle position
as long as possible to the left.

Press the binding down, like this........

Change the presser foot, this is the nr. 5 - Bernina.
And sew the zipper on at both sides,
(the zipper should be split).

Remember to move your needle position. 

Cut of the binding behind the Zipper (on both sides)

Make a second seam at the binding......

...... make sure that the second seam meet the zipper
at the "wrong" side :o)

You can now close the zipper.

Sew the sides togheter, first the 1/4 seam allowance
and then zic zac edge like this:

Now its time to make Box corner......
Remember to count in the seam allowance.

......and cut.......
Sew an 1/4 inch seam allowance and zic zac edge like this:

And......... Vola!!

Here are some ideas...
With application.

With application, LeKa flower.

The design of this purse was made by my friend Helga in 2008.
