Lapped Zipper Tutorial

So since I learned how to properly sew in a lapped zipper (I have never been able to understand the directions that come with the zipper itself), I decided to make myself a little tutorial when in case I forget! Now, I'm sharing it with you. I apologize for the sound (never mind my amazing hairdo) and the fact that it isn't HD, but I think it does the job.

  3. Thanks for this tutorial! I only did a lapped zipper once and my method wasn't very good. This will be helpful for my next lapped zipper project.

  5. AWESOME tutorial! I have no idea how to put in zips properly. Such a great idea to have the head of the zip right up the top so it doesn't get in the way. I can't believe I never thought of that!
