Trim the Zipper
Make a Change Purse

Trim the zipper and stitch up to make a stopper.

Resizing a zipper is very easy. Snip it with your scissors to trim it to be flush with the edge of your fabric.

An 1/8" from the end of the zipper, start to overcast stitch across the teeth of the zipper. Do this enough times to create a stopper that will prevent the zipper head from coming off.

Next, let's start to stitch up the sides.
