Sew It Slow: Day 5

Today’s videos are all about how to sew zippers! My favorite zipper is a hand picked zipper, the look of it is so unique, and you can pick a thread to match your fabric or stand out. A hand picked zipper will add so much charm to your hand made garment.

If your following along, share your progress using the hashtag #PheeSlowSew on social media. Don’t forget to catch all the posts for the sew along here. If you finish early, don’t forget to enter a photo of your creation!
