I have been sewing for more years than I would like to remember. But there's one thing that I've always shied away from - zips.
Call it irrational, but the thought of them has terrfied me and I've never even attempted to put in a zip. After having a pile of zips in my workbasket for the past few years, I decided to take the plunge and make a dent in the pile.
After some head scratching I think I have cracked it!
The size of the zips dictated what could be made with them. So I went for small zippered change purses. This cheery print seemed an obvious choice.
To add some detail there are boxed corners.
And we all know that I can't leave alone, so I have added some embellishment in the form of grosgrain ribbon and a removeable badge.
And for all of you that haven't mustered enough courage to tackle zips, you can always take the easier option of getting yours from here.
