Found a cute link for a tutorial on how to make a cute zippered pouch. One that would slip inside a notebook at Rush's Dry Goods dot ca.
Here's the tut. for a makeup case( uh hum,.. heh Michelle, they show great instructions for a zipper! ).
Here's their home page.
Another link regarding zippers is at Lazy Girl's blog by Joan Hawley. This one is how to do a totally enclosed zipper for a bag. UNIQUE!
