Mary, it's adorable! I agree about stabilizing the seamline for the zipper. If you use a press cloth on the fusible, you can set the heat higher, but you still have to watch the clock. Another alternative is to stabilize the edge using a scrap of organza or the selvage from a lightweight woven fabric. It only takes a few extra minutes to sew it in by hand, and it makes a big difference in the look and the life expectancy of the seam. -Ann
