Sewing: This Dork Owns a Zipper Foot

Ever feel like a complete dork?

Yup, that's me right now.

Since I've committed to making the Weekender Bag and it has a zipper to be put in, I figured I'd better get my patootie down to the LQS for some help on installing a zipper.

Let's just say my first attempt did not go well...involving numerous bad words, throwing things at walls, using my seam ripper, and finally just giving up and taking it to the alterations place for them to install.

I wasn't ever planning on doing a zipper again.

But I really want to do this bag...

I've scrounged the seven seas for the perfect fabric....

I've ordered the obsessively long zipper for this bag...

So I signed up for a class this Saturday....and the supply list for the class includes a "zipper" foot....duh!

And guess who found the zipper foot in her Bernina foot cubby....ME!

Dork! Dork! Dork!

OH, how brave you are. I took two Bernina classes and even the lady who taught one of the classes doesn't do zippers. She has only put one in and that was at a class. She did say that the teacher told her it was perfect. But she said zippers were not her thing - ever! I admire you. Zippers do not like me at all. I'm anxious to hear how you do.
