Part 3: Inserting Zippers and Working with Clear Vinyl

Welcome to Part Three of the Nail Bag Sew-A-Long!
In this lesson we’ll finish the other side of the inside of the bag. Inserting zippers onto clear vinyl and creating pouches for the nail files – even cotton balls will fit into these see-thru areas.

Supplies needed for this lesson:

  • Clear Vinyl
  • 7” or 8” metal exposed zippers
  • SA122 Non-stick foot, 5mm or SA114 Non-stick foot, 7mm
  • Plastic fabric clips

With fabric clips and a Non-stick foot, inserting zippers into vinyl has never been easier. Grab your favorite Brother sewing machine and a Non-stick foot;

now let’s take the fear out of sewing on clear vinyl!
