Cut and fuse all fabrics, according to your cutting directions.  Align and clip your zipper, right side facing the right side of your first fabric panel.  Make sure your zipper head is facing the fabric.  Using your zipper foot attachment, sew the zipper tape to the panel.  Fold-down the zipper tape to the back of the fabric panel and secure it with a line of stitches.  Align the other side of your panel to the top of zipper tape and clip in place.  Sew your second fabric panel to the zipper tape.  Fold-down the zipper tape to the back of the fabric panel and secure it with a line of stitches.  While your project is still inside out, unzip your zipper about halfway.  Fold the sewn fabric panels ends so that the center of the bottom is in the middle and the zipper is aligned on top of that.  Align and secure the raw edges together and insert the pull tab on the closed zipper end.  Repeat that step for the other side (except insert the lobster clasp and tab on this end) and sew the raw edges closed.

Taking your boxing template, draw cut lines on all four corners of the project.  Using your sharp fabric scissors (these are the BEST scissors), cut out the corners.  Trim off the excess zipper tape.  Align the handle in the middle of the boxed corner.  Use clips to secure.  Repeat for the other end of the handle.  Sew these edges closed.  Make sure you backstitch at the beginning and end of each side.  It is also a good idea to backstitch the handle area as well since this is a high use area.  Repeat on the other side of the bag.  Turn your finished exterior bag right side out.
