(Read the note at the bottom of my instructions....)

I don't have a zipper foot either, or if I do I have no idea where it is...But basically pin the pocket in place, have the zipper head towards you/in front of the presser foot and sew about halfway across and leave your needle in the down position, so you don't loose the thread or stitch, and lift your presser foot. Then reach between the layers and pull the zipper out of the way by pulling the zipper head behind the needle and presser foot out of the way. The fabric and the zipper flap will no longer be distorted and sew the rest of the way down.

Does that make sense?

It is hard to make instructions for something I am so used to doing...

Oh geez... I tried sewing on a zipper today for a bag I made, but I don't have a zipper foot... It was a disaster and I ended up having to attempt to stitch it on by hand.  If only I had read this post last night!   Tongue

great tutorial and very easy to follow! thank you!
i was really afraid to try a zipper but this made it seem really easy, and it truly wasn't that bad.
i was especially afraid because my liner fabric was vintage and i didn't want to destroy it, but no harm done, and an incredible tote to boot!


hey, i do personal swaps! especially for fiber. i am addicted to fiber & yarn. addicted.
