DIY: How to install a zipper

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 ;).
