Inserting a zipper?

Anyone have any advice on sewing zippers into purses/clothing? I am a little scared to even try, it seems so hard! And the patterns I have don't have the clearest instructions - does anyone have any tips, tricks, or websites I can visit that might help?

Thanks!

    This is a tutorial for making a zippered pouch in a purse. While at Crafster, look around..........there are hundreds of instructions and "how to" demonstrations. I like this site alot and have learned how to do many things there.

    Hope this helps.

    The best way I've found to do zippers is to baste them first -- make sure it's exactly where you want it -- and then sew it in. Much easier than trying to rip it out after sewing.
