I was scared stiff about putting the zip in as I have only done it once before and it wasnt very successful. Last night I did a search of tutorials on how to put a zip in and came across a whole selection on you tube. This one was by far my favourite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue5z2rWS588&feature=fvw. I followed it exactly and it was surprisingly easy even with a regular foot on my machine rather than the zipper foot so many people say is essential.
I'm really happy with them and actually looking forward to the other three now. What do you think?
Just noticed that they are slightly off centre but I think once they are pressed, stuffed and in place you won't notice anyway.
My handsome little man offered to hold it for me to take his picture! so cute!!
