Two months ago I attempted to add a zip pocket in a tote, which turned out to be an epic fail.  I never wanted to do anything like that again until I watched your tutorial.  I tried your method for the first time over the weekend, and the result was a perfect zip pocket.  I never thought this was possible.  Thank you, THANK YOU for this tutorial!  I am telling all my friends about you.  : )

Excellent photography! Really love your choice of contrasting fabric with denim! The result is fabulous, and you are a very good teacher, meticulous with instructions. So glad you have learned the lesson about noisy background. No one needs any distraction when learning. The din drowns out your perfect soft voice, which needs no enhancement from any soundtrack. Thanks for the tips!

Hi Izzy thanks you for this awesome tutorial on putting zips in any bag/bags. This is My First time watching your video. However I've already made quite a few bags & sell them & still planning on making more soon. Sometimes I does used velcro, snaps or buttons for closure or nothing if the bag is to have a flap piece;because I didn't know how to put a zip in a bag but thanks to your video I now know how to. I have sewn zips in other things already just not on bags cause I just taught it was difficult to do especially with bags that you have to put a flap in. Anyways I look forward to your response A.S.A.P!
