Tutorial: Add a zipper to a finished bag

The open top of a tote bag is handy for many purposes, but not always.  A zipper across the top would keep your items from falling out, but finding a zippered tote already made can be difficult.  Maiden Jane shares a tutorial on her blog showing how to add a zipper to a finished bag.  Her method involves stitching the zipper directly to the bag’s opening, rather than inserting a fabric flap.  Get the how-to.
