What people are saying about this course:

“I have been sewing with zippers by the yard for years. This is the best description I have seen of how to get the pull on evenly! I also learned how to miter the corner with bias tape better. Thank you for all you do! ”

Malia O.

“Caroline, I love the way you did this pouch. I have made similar ones, but the way you bound the inside was such a nice finish. And the your instructions for attaching the zipper pull were far simpler than the ones I have used before. Pictures to come.”
