Uses: You can use this zipper in place of the lapped zipper or the centered zipper. It works great pretty much anywhere--garments, pillow cases, etc.--and you may find it easier than the other zipper techniques.
Notes: You can use a regular zipper foot for this, but a special invisible zipper foot makes it easier. Also, if you are replacing a lapped or centered zipper with the invisible zipper that a pattern calls for, sew this zipper in per these directions first before doing anything else to the seam. As a final note, this sample was sewn with the wrong side of the fabric on the outside by mistake; adjust accordingly from the pictures you see here.
