Sewing 101 - How to Sew an Invisible Zipper Without an Invisible Zipper Foot

Every Monday I have a infographic about basic sewing to answer one of your questions. Feel free to ask questions in the comments or email me. Also, if you know the answer to someone's question, go ahead and answer it. We're here to help each other learn about sewing!
