    Hello I'm trying to sew a zipper on/in a project. I am trying to create a cell phone case that also has a zipper part to hold money in.

    This is my first case that came out great. It is the back of it and the yellow is where i want the zipper to be on the case:


    as you can see it is not like a cosmetic bag or coin purse where the zipper goes all the way across. It's more in the center of the fabric.

    Does anybody know where I can find a Tutorial on how to do this particular zipper? i haven't done zippers at all but would love to add this to my cell phone case. I found a youtube video but it doesn't show how to do it from the very start.

    Here's the Front, just for show:

    Nice work! What you're looking for is called a slash pocket. You can find a tutorial with photos here, or just search Google or Pinterest for "slash pocket tutorial".
