  • First start by applying interfacing to the outer fabric where you will install the zipper.
  • Then mark a rectangle where you want the zipper to be. The zipper Annette used for this is 4" and she marked a rectangle that is 4"x 0.5".
  • She then placed the outer and lining fabric right sides together, and sew around the rectangle using a smaller stitch.
  • Then clip the inside of the rectangle get the corners as close to the stitches as you can without actually cutting them.
  • Flip inside out and press, then line up and pin your zipper in place, and top-stitch all the way around.
