Have you seen this new Zippered Bags With A Twist- One Way Zip Class with Joan Hawley on Craftsy? If the answer is no, then my question to you is why not?
Not only did I really enjoy watching Joan teach but the projects are quickly becoming my favs! (Actually, if you are on my Christmas exchange list please stop reading, this might be a spoiler alert.)
One Way Zip Class
Let’s take a look at the class-
Joan Hawley from Lazy Girls Designs walks you through her signature one-zip technique and shares 3 of her popular patterns.
These patterns are valued over $30.00 if bought separately not to mention the 2 hours of video instructions for one low price.
Now, if you are not familiar with Joan and Lazy Girls Designs you might be wondering about this one-zip technique well, let me explain; each project only uses one side of the zipper teeth. This technique makes sewing in zippers a breeze and is just BRILLIANT!
I won’t give all the secrets away but I can tell you that with each project you earn a badge of honor.
My favorite project from the class is the Fobio.
It seriously takes me longer to pick out my fabrics & zipper combo’s than it does to make the Fobio. I LOVE it! No joke, I actually used the stop watch feature on my phone and realized that I from start to finish, this project was under 10 minutes. That’s everything from cutting to finishing details my friends!
I knew instantly after making my first one that this was a winner and went to the scrap stash. It did not take long for me to deplete my zipper stash. Now, I’m keeping all of my half zippers in a bag and ordering the zipper heads to make more in the future.

Comments & Reviews
Thanks so much for the review Heather. It’s been on my wishlist too. I find zippers fiddly so anything that shows us an easy way is a winner with me.
Agreed Deby! I really like Joan’s technique and can see using it in so many different projects.

I would love to see your video on using half a zipper. Looks like alot of fun. I see this was last year. Is it still able to be purchased?

This class is not offered by Craftsy/Blueprint anymore. I was unable to find it either by name or the teacher’s name.
Thank you for letting me know. Craftsy has gone through some major changes and new management. I am sure they are working things out with the designer directly and hope that they can come to a resolution as this was a great class.
