WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS

1. Determine how long you want the zipper. Zippers are measured from the zipper pull to the zipper stop.

2. Measure the zipper from the zipper pull and mark the tape at the desired length.

3. Double thread and knot a needle.

4. At the mark on the tape, bring the needle up from the back of the zipper and whip stich across the zipper teeth. Do this 4 or 5 times.

5. Secure the thread with a knot on the back of the zipper.

6. Cut the zipper and tape about 1 to 1 1/2 inches below the new zipper stop. IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE YOUR FABRIC SCISSORS BECAUSE CUTTING THE ZIPPER TEETH CAN DULL THE BLADE. And, if the zipper teeth are metal, carefully cut between the zipper teeth.
