Messenger bag 2 - zip - Day 281

ZIPPITY ZIP - Zips are tricky at the best of times. Especially since I have lost the zipper foot on my machine! 
I looked up different techniques on line to work out how to do this, and was happy to find it was a tab system like the clear window pocket. Moments like this I love the internet! 

Its just a matter of cutting a line down the middle, the triangle ends, iron under and stitch on zip. Did have to play with the pocket lining, but worked out I could slip the front panel under the zip, stitch round the zip, then stitch the top stitched when doing the edge stitch. Then I just stitched the sides.
