I'm looking for a tutorial that shows how to cover up the ends of your zippers - so the zipper doesn't curve down into the side seams... does that make any sense?

I've seen it in store bought wristlets and can't figure out how they do that...  the sides of the bag are topstitched, and then the zipper almost looks tucked in, the edges sit a little down but the zipper is at the same height of the sides.

Oh, and one more thing.... the top of the bagis like a rectangle - it's not 'tapered' at the ends.

I will look around for a pic but wanted to get my question out there just in case anyone else thinks the way I do and can figure out what I'm looking for  Shocked

Thanks!!!

THANKS!  The second one is what I'm looking for when I say 'hidden' zipper ends....  now I just need to figure out how to set the zipper in a little lower (still looking for a pic)....
