I'm probably more confused than when I first started researching this topic and I've spent hours and have only come up with some people say turn the zipper down towards the lining and some people saying turn the zipper up towards main fabric when stitching around a pouch or purse.  Anyone got some thoughts on this??  Seriously, I've tried it both ways and don't like either  Cheesy Cheesy  This is frustrating because recently I've read tutorials from well known pattern designers and it's half and half with them also.

I would guess, since there are differing directions, that it's personal preference and what type of project you're doing?

Kaz, these are for zipped bags, pouches, purses..doing a variety and since I just started doing zippers in more things like that I found it confusing.

This is the best tutes I've seen on it. Started making my zips this way and it's much easier than the bulkiness of what others have tuted. http://sewingnovice.com/2012/10/23/recessed-zipper-tutorial/

I agree, the recessed zip looks neater on many types of bags. Smiley
