Now take your zipper and make sure it is zipped all the way up. Your bag outer should be inside out. Pin one edge of the zipper to one side of the bag outer, right sides facing and stitch in place. Make sure the zipper pull is outside of the area you will be stitching (since there is an inch open on the sides of the bag, you can pull the zipper head through afterwards, see 4th picture for clarity). Don’t get too close to the zipper teeth or the zipper won’t open! Then pin the other side of the zipper to the other side of the bag, right sides facing, and stitch in place. It should look something like this.
