Bunny was given this super cute tote bag by her auntie a while back and she loves it so much that she wanted to use it as her sports bag for school. The problem was that without a closure there wasn’t really anything to stop her stuff falling out all over the place. As often happens I remembered I could sew – so I decided to add a zip to her tote bag! I used a separating zip so that she can unzip it all the way if desired and use it as a tote bag whenever she wants to. It was a really easy addition and I love how it turned out! This method works equally well for an existing tote bag (store bought or handmade is fine!) or you can pair this method with our DIY Tote bag tutorial and make yourself a zip up tote bag from scratch. Alright, let me show you how to add a zip to a tote bag after the jump!
