More attaching zipper to cushion

Remembering this cushion does not have a 4-side boxing, here we are attaching a zipper in back and the two sides.  The cushion top will fold over to create the front side.

Also, this video points out that before we ever sewed, we tested needle tension.  We would sew samples of the cloth together and make sure the thread met in the middle.

I would also test that the fabric was being pulled through the machine evenly.  On a sailrite machine, this is not a problem since both the bottom and top are pulled.  On this machine, it can be a problem and we need to make sure the sewing foot is not too tight or too loose.

The solution was simple.  We test sewed fabrics together before sewing the real thing.
