- 2 pieces of quilted fabric approximately 14" X 14"
- 14 -16 inch zipper
- a fabric strip 4" wide by 16" long for the strap
- a fabric strip 1 1/2" wide by 9" long for the zipper pull
Baste the zipper in place -- you can use pins, but they shift as you sew. I suggest hand basting as it holds the zipper in place and doesn't move.
Stitch all the way down one side and stop about 1 inch before the end with the needle down and lift and turn and stitch across the end - right thru' the zipper.
Then lift and turn and stitch back down the other side.
You may have to go around the head of the zipper - stay as close as you can and stitch to the end of the fabric to hold the tabs of the zippers down.
Then with a little scissors or a seam ripper snip out the basting stitches to open the seam.
Fold in half and press as shown in photo.
Stitch with an Embroidery stitch or a zig zag stitch down one side first.
Then stitch down the other side - leaving the ends raw.
by 9 inches deep.
