you can then fold the whole thing over and sew it down. yeah...i know sewing it twice, but it worked and i had no problems at all with it :)
i finished off the waistline with a look and hook closure, i'm not sure i'm happy with it but it will do for now.
next i will be putting trim anround the seam (where the 2 fabrics are sewn together).

okey here is a purse that i made from some instructions on line.
first i cut the back pockets off a pair of jeans. i did add a 3/4 inch seam allowance, ya know, for seams.
amazingly i had the perfect size and color of zipper lying around (unbelievable!!). the right sides are pinned together. then i sewed it.
i did it to both pockets. now they are attached at the tops by the zipper.
i sewed the pockets together around the sides and bottom. in the seam on the side i did add a handle (a piece of seam from the jeans). if you look close there is pins holding the flap down, i did attach buttons on both sides to hold the flaps closed.
