Default MY FIRST ZIPPER... and i did it without a zipper foot

i'm feeling pretty smug

this is my first zipper, ever.
yes, i realize that i sewed the fabric awful close to the zipper teeth, but i checked and double-checked and the zipper opens and closes nicely.

i did this without a zipper foot!

i'm especially proud of how lucky i got with Strawberry Shortcake being almost perfect in the middle!

oh, and ps.
i figured out the interfacing business (for those who read my interfacing fiasco lol)

Great job on the zipper as well as matching the strawberry shortcake! And good to hear you got the interfacing issue resolved.
