Zipper almost ready to sew

One more video of the zipper in place prior to sewing...

Note that the zipper tape did not line up with the far edge/sides.  In future cushions, we avoided that.  I made sure the zipper tape was attached to both sides from the middle out with the teeth matching the way that they were originally locked together.  I learned to use only the slightest pressure when applying the zipper tape to the cushion with the seam tape if I wanted edges and original teeth to line up perfectly.

It didn't make a difference, except that I like things to line up perfectly.  The tape in this video was simply trimmed shorter and that was that - no problem and the zipper worked perfectly.
