I love zippers! Not necessarily the kind you can’t reach in the back of a dress that make you do a weird kind of dance that if anyone video taped said dance money could be won on America’s Funniest Home Videos or the kind that seem to break at the most inopportune time!
A year ago I saw a picture of a flower that was made from zipper and I fell in love. So I Googled and found a few tutorials and voila – zipper flowers! A few weeks ago I bought some beautiful zipper colors and created more lovely pins/brooches. I hope you love them too.
If you’d like to make a flower like those here, you can purchase zippers at any of the local fabric stores (or even Wal-Mart) and take them apart or you can find an online shop that sells zipper by the yard, which is what I usually do.You will be surprised by the varieties of colors your will find available. I prefer the zipper that has brass or silver teeth instead of the ones with the plastic teeth in the same color as the zipper material.
