Center and place zipper over thestitching lines.The zipper should be longer than the area and it will betrimmed later.

 

There are few important things:

  1. Lay the ZIP exactly in the center
  2. Lay it so the metal ZIP details are outside of stitching
  3. The ZIP is securely taped
  4. Set the zipper pull approx.  ½ " outside of the purse outline 
  5. Fix the zipper pull well with a tape

Below photo is illustrative to show how to fix well
