How to add zipper tabs
- 1”x 2” fabric pieces
- regular needle
- coordinating thread
- Fold the tab in half, lengthwise and press flat.
2. Open the tab and fold it again, this time with the edges to the inside. Press it flat again.
3. Keeping the edges facing inwards, fold the tab again and press it flat.
4. Add the tab to the zipper edges, inserting the zipper in between. Then pin the tab to the zipper.
5. Take it to the sewing machine and stitch the tabs to the zipper with a 1/8 seam allowance. For the purpose of this tutorial I have used contrasting thread to show you the stitches, however you might want to use some coordinating thread.
6. Finally, trim the excess fabric on the sides of the tabs.
And that is ready!
Now you can use this zipper for your makeup bag or any other project you need to make.
