okay everyone, i need your help! i am making a duvet cover and have done everything but putting some kind of closure on the 4th side. i bought some snap tape and even pinned it in place. but when i went to sew it, i realized the snaps themselves get in the way of the presser foot (the "tape" part is only about an inch wide). i thought about using my zipper foot, but it looks like they will still get in the way. what the heck am i supposed to do? please help, i'm so close to finishing, and totally stuck!

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

your sipper foot should be able to adjust  if not I guess velcro is a good choice or a zipper.

Keep it loose, keep it tight.

Can you just hand sew it, or use stich witchery or something?

oh me of little faith! my zipper foot ended up working fine. it's not adjustable, but i hadn't realized that the side meant to go over the zipper teeth is a little bit raised. the parts of the snap i thought were going to interfere slipped right under it! if you're interested, you can see the finished project here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17107.0 . thanks for your help! i'm so happy with my "new" bedroom!
