Okay, I have a huge confession to make. Zippers and all the complexities they imply scare the holy beejeebiz out of me! I have done wonders with velcro and other fasteners as a way to avoid the looming threat of having to put a zipper into something.
So, when I saw this Tutorial on how to Install a Basic Zipper on Make It and Love It I had to share. She breaks down how to install a zipper with some cool short cuts too and does it in such a way that even I think I might be able to do this. Still not confident enough to try and replace the broken zipper in the jacket that used to belong to my dad, but I might try it on some reusable snack bags at some point ;).
