Tutorial: How to insert the zipper pull to metal zip

Today i am going to share with you a tutorial on how to install a zipper pull to metal zip.
I know most of you are an experience seamstress, so this tutorial might be helpful for a beginner seamstress. Ha!

You see, installing the metal zip puller to the metal zip is not the same as the nylon zip. You can install both ways for nylon zip but for metal zip you have to remember this crucial detail.

Look at the zipper teeth. Make sure the teeth is facing up!

The zipper teeth is still facing up and the zip puller will be inserted from the bottom.

Insert the zip puller and align both side. Make sure the zipper fabric is align neatly.

Placing your both fingers on both side of the zip fabrics and press firmly. 

You should be able to pull the zip puller smoothly to the center. 
If you insert the zip puller with the zip teeth facing down, you cannot pull the zip smoothly.
This is actually a trick that I learn from a workshop I attended in National Craft Center during my leather workshop 2 years ago, so you know that I have been neglecting to use metal zip for sooooo long hahaha....!

I hope this encourage you to buy more meter cut zipper than the fix by inch meter.
