I posted this question in tinafish's tutorial post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35575.0), but thought it should go here instead. Anybody that has made her tutorial, can you help?
First, can you do this purse without the extra strips around the zipper, as in sew the zipper directly to the exterior and lining? (similiar to this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0)
If the answer to the above is no, that could be the root of my problem.
So far, I have the zipper sewn to all four pieces (2 exterior, 2 lining). I'm at the point where I sew the exterior pieces together and sew the lining pieces together, but I can't figure out how to do it with the little "tips" left at the top of each piece. Was I supposed to sew the zipper up around the curve (instead of just on the straight part)?
Anybody out there to help?
