    Now take one set of half circles. Place the red half circle right side up,then zipper right side up and yellow circle with interfacing wrong side up so that all the pieces align along the zipper edge. Make a stitch with 1/4" seam allowance.(I used 1/4" seam allowance because the zipper I am using is 1" wide and if we use two 1/4" seam allowance we are subtracting 1/2" but adding 1/2" in the middle of the zipper, so the math will work perfectly.)

    To secure the zipper, use a needle and thread and make a couple of stitches at the edge. I used a studded trim from my stash to secure the zipper. I thought this eliminates a step and also adds a cuteness the purse.

    Instead of zipper , you can also use snap fasteners, buttons or velcro to make this purse. The only modifications would be you have to cut the circles into two parts which slightly overlaps one another and also the top flap should cover the bottom part.To do this, trace the template in a piece of paper and make two paper template. Draw the bottom part first , add 1/4" seam allowance and cut it. place that pattern above another paper template and mark the corners where it needs to be overlapped (May be 1/4")and connect it by drawing a curve.This serves as a top flap template.Cut it with 1/4" seam allowance.Here is how the pieces look.
