    This is just what I have been looking for. I crocheted a purse and was trying to learn how to use my sewing machine to install my first zipper into the purse’s lining. You showed me every thing I need to know about zippers. I no longer fear the zipper.

    Great tutorial. I was wondering where can I get the zipper tape you talk about. My source of Zippers is the fabric store and I always purchase ready made ones that come in 7″, 9″, etc…
