Purse made of Zippers ( pics )

toomuchglassApril 17, 2011

I thought this was just adorable - I got it at the GW for $1.50 . The whole purse - even the strap - are all zippers just sewn together ! I bookmarked the instructions on the web ....but I priced zippers at JoAnn Fabrics today and they START at $2.00 each . YIKES !

Here's the side view :

One side of it are all the zipper pulls - they just dangle so cute !

Cute!

I think I would have done it so that the back side zippers ended on the opposite side of the front side ones - that way you would have the metallic pulls down each side, almost like a fringe!

My grandaugter has one like that (or did?) They bought it at Lake Okaboji in Iowa on vacation. Her other grandma bought it for her, and I understand she paid good money for it (for a little girl, she was probably 8 or 9 at the time)

It is cute. Hopefully, the person who made it got the zippers wholesale!

Check out Home Sew. There are three places to find zippers. There's the buttons and zippers category, the present sample club and the previous sample club. They sell a bundle of zippers for very low prices. I've shopped with them for at least 20 years. They are extremely reliable and have great notions at wonderful prices.
