How to Sew a Zipper Backpack : How to Attach a Zipper to a Backpack


Hi I’m Karen for Expert Village. Okay now
before we pin our body to our bottom we want to attach the bottom of our zipper assembly.
For this you want to take a look, you want/of the way you want to unzip the back strap in
the end. So you may want to go ahead and turn this right side again just to be able to visualize
which way the zipper is going to be facing when you attach it to the top. So this is
the top of the bag and the top of the inside zipper. You want the zipper for the backpack
to be also sticking out this way facing you. Then that zipper holds that in place and pull
the zipper and match it up with the front zipper. There and place that one on top of
the other. I’m off setting the bulk of the zipper on the end so that it is not in the
way. I’m going to pin those two zippers together in place like this. Now we can tuck that back
in there and we are ready to pin the bottom onto the bottom of the body. So the first
thing you want to do is to match the center of the bottom there to the zipper centers.
Right to the center of that zipper. Place some pins on either side of the zipper to
hold that in place. Then move your weight over to the side centers matching the pins
like this.
You can take one pin out and then just use that to hold it in place. You can take the
other pin out and pin that like that. Then just rotate around now you have these centers
to match. You would just match them up like that and pin (remove these out) we are going
to add a lot more pins once we get the centers matching. Add a lot more pins to hold it all
in place for sewing.
