tutorial on Sew Delicious. This afternoon I went to AC Moore and bought some head pins, some split rings (all items described in the tutorial above), and some beads.
|Voila! Zipper pulls!|
|Here are the new zipper pulls installed in Linda's bag.|
Zipit on Etsy.
The idea to make beaded zipper pulls was inspired by two bloggers that I follow regularly: Daryl who blogs at Patchouli Moon Studio and LeeAnna who blogs at Not Afraid of Color. Daryl makes a lot of gorgeous bags and she always finishes them so nicely with a handmade zipper pull. You can see one in this post. My friend LeeAnna is a super talented art quilter and she is always blogging about the clever little charms and other cute objects she finds to use in her quilts. She has a magpie's eye, just like me, always wanting whatever is glittering or shiny.
