Turns Out Zippers Aren't So Scary After All!

I made this little zippered purse to take on our holiday (2 weeks today!) I followed this excellent tutorial
I decided to use some scraps of upholstery fabric in case I mucked it up. I used an ancient zipper (still in original packaging), which has metal teeth and age spots! It also turns out that I am rather impressed with my effort!


  1. I only challenged zips last year and I too wondered why I'd always been so terrified! Love the new banner.

  2. Zippers do have an undeserved bad reputation! Congratulations for facing your fear. Your purse is very cute.

  3. You did a great job! What a cute pouch!

    Thanks so much for linking to me!


  4. Love the pouch! It is so cute and would make good gifts too!

  5. Very clever! Zippers can be very frightening, so I'm glad yours worked out so beautifully :-)

  6. What an amazing job for your first try! Fabulous fabric too.

  7. I'm yet to cross that bridge! I am very impressed with your effort too - those purses are soooo cute! They look like something you would buy in a boutique. :)


Thankyou for coming to visit and sharing your thoughts with me. You keep me blogging!
