Many times I have been stumped by a new sewing technique ( ie, applying invisible zipper comes to mind). Searching the internet, I found several how-to videos on youtube where the particular technique was demonstrated step-by-step.

These how-to videos are wonderful if you are a visual or an auditory learner as you can see and hear the process right in front of you. The beauty of this is that you can learn several different methods of the same process and choose which best fits your project.

The invisible zipper demonstration I found was better than any instructions I had in sewing reference books at home. And the cost? $0 Who can beat that? It's like having a live-in sewing teacher available 24/7. So if you are struggling with a sewing technique, give youtube.com a try to see if your solution is there.

Here's the invisible zipper video I found so helpful:

I have used the videos a lot. There are some very helpful ones if a person takes the time to look.

Here's a tip on a tip... Buy your zipper several inches longer than needed. Then you're not sewing so close to the bulky zipper pull like she is in the video.
