    how do you put in a scalloped lace zipper

    I have a bunch of these and want to use them on zip bags but for the life of me cannot find a tutorial on this. Any one have a link?

    I would just sew them directly on the outside of my fabric. The edge is pretty so I would want it to show.

    Never seen these zippers before. Wonder what next they will do in reinventing the zipper. I would agree that you need to sew these on the outside.

    someone was telling me the other day that the latest fad was using metal or exposed zipppers as opposed to hidden zippers in totes & pouches. she was so surprised and worried about how to use them. just like these pretty lace zips. looking at these two tutes, which are excellent and well illustrated, i am reminded again that a lot of quilters today weren't home sewers who took up quilting after the clothes making for the kids was done

    Thank to you all. These are two great tutes....I will have fun with my new zips now. I already have an idea for some pencil holders. I will post when I get them done.

    I have seen them in JoAnn's and Hancock's when Hancock's was here. Found couple at an estate sale for 10 cents each.
