FOZ or Fear of Zippers has gripped me, my friends. All I have left to do on my niece’s halter top, is to sew on a little 8-inch invisible zipper. How can that be what’s keeping me from finishing this now late birthday present? How can I be brought to my knees by a small thing like that?
Easy. A zipper can make or break this piece.
To be honest, there’s one other aspect that’s holding me back. I can’t recall if my humble Singer (and n0 I don’t know the model number off hand) has a zipper foot or a piping foot. Most likely it’s a zipper foot which can pinch hit as a piping foot, but it most definitely is NOT an invisible zipper foot. So last week, when I was purchasing the fear inducing zipper, I picked up a doodad. That’s an Elizabethism for doohickey. Apparently, I am the only person on this planet that says doodad, but I swear I heard it from someone else before. Anyway… I bought this doodad that fits most sewing machines and becomes (from the two pieces) an invisible zipper foot. Seriously. Here’s a pic and the link (just scroll all the way down).
Has anyone used this before? Is it a piece of junk? Let me know please before I ruin my first garment!!!
Hopefully, putting in this zipper will be just as easy peasy as the pintucks were. Although I have to say my FOP (Fear of Pintucks) isn’t nearly as paralytic as FOZ.
Wish me luck and happy sewing!
