Not too shabby for my first attempt at a zipper!
It’s certainly not perfect, not by a mile, but I’m happy with it and so is my sister (I made the wristlet for her 🙂 ) I’d like to thank YouTube for being an all encompassing source for entertainment and education! Who would have known that you could learn just about anything from YouTube?
This was a very spur of the moment project. No patterns, no planning, just cut and sew. It turned out pretty well. I’d like to make a tutorial for one at some point, but I think I need to improve my process a little more first.
I already had the D Rings (it’s a supply I regularly use when I make nursing covers) and the fabrics were steals I got a while back from SomeArtFabric. I had the sipper laying around for a while now and just didn’t want to know what to attempt with it. I’m really excited about how easy the zipper part of this project was. Now I can add zippers to skirts and such for my daughter!
Speaking for skirts, I am working on a guest post for My Junk Drawer that should be up sometime in November. It’s a twirl skirt tutorial and should be super fun for anyone interested in trying their hand at one. My version is super simple and is easy for anyone with a basic sewing machine and the ability to straight stitch!
