Start to stitch the zip in using a neat straight stitch.

before passing the needle all the way through turn the purse over to make sure that

your underside stitches are the same distance away from the zip. Being patient and

taking your time at this step will make or break your purse!

Felt is very forgiving and you will be able to manipulate the edges so they are lined up very neatly.
