How to Install a Zipper {tutorial}


** Use a zipper foot to sew around the zipper starting on one side at the top, going down to desired spot, crossing over zipper {2-3 times forward and reverse to reinforce}, and back up the other side.**

Linking to some of these parties!


  1. Thank you! I am very new to sewing and I decided I wanted to add a zipper but all the other tutorials seemed so difficult! Novice Question: why a zipper foot? I have one and will use it but I just don't get why?

    1. The zipper foot actually helps guide the zipper through the feed whereas a regular presses foot will make it slide around a little and the needle can't get close enough to the zipper.

    2. *presser foot. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you'll find lots of helpful tutorials here!


I love your comments and love hearing from each of you!
