Assembling:
Sew the zipper. The shortest I got is 7 inches, you can just cut it if it is too long.
Back to crocheting
Row 1: Facing wrong side together, sc together around
Row 2: *sc in the next sc, picot in the next, sc in the next* repeat from * to * around. Fasten off.




I prefer to sew the zipper by machine and it is the hardest part for me. It took me more than an hour to finish them all. And of course, it wasn't fun because I broke a needle!
