Alternate Zipper For Wallet Tutorial

Every measurement is the same EXCEPT the inner fabric and interfacing. ADD an INCH
Measure 1 1/2 inch from the top of your INTERFACING
Cut your fabric across here
line up right sides together and sew using 1/2 inch seam allowance and longest stitch possible(you will rip this out later)
This will make your zipper 1" from the top of the wallet and make your inner piece back to the 10" size like your outter fabric.
Press that sucker down GOOD!Pin your zipper directly on top of you seam
Sew your zipper in place. only on sides shown, you dont have to go all the way around this one
Rip out that seam we talked about earlier :o)

Continue to make the wallet the same way as before. JUST be sue to open your zipper when you stitch everything together or you wont be able to open it later LOL!

To me this is MUCH simpler than the other zipper! I think I like the look better too!

i put the other one on 3 times before i was satisfied with how it looks, and it still doesn't look "good"
