Err, who made this before? I searched for a review before starting and there was none. I still wanted this made so I got as far as the zipper part without any issues.

I'm reading and re-reading the instruction on how to install the zipper and it still has me scratching my head.

Step 9G, I flipped the zipper over as instructed. 9H, it asked me to create creases and fold as directed. No problems so far.

Step 9I is where I struggled. I'm not sure how to explain but probably best if anybody has made this before. I tried googling and it's only giving me very little details. There are shots of the insides (I wish there were more for the book), but no mention about how the zipper went in.

Anybody? I worked on this late last night and read the instruction 9I over and over and decided to call it a night. Any suggestions?

I'm like SOOO close from finishing the wristlet.

Also there is a posted correction that may apply to you.

Ah sorta. I thought about it but couldn't see how that would work. Yep! I saw the correction (fortunately) and got that included in my steps.

I'm happy to say that I've figured it out. It took more creative approach. I hope my blog is back up soon so I can post/talk about it.

I did the opposite steps in installing the zippers and that worked out well.
