Sewing zippers sounds scary - until you do it! I've never sewn a lace zipper, but it looks even easier than a regular zip.
Lauren, from Molly and Mama, shows how to make a Zippered Pouch embellished with a Hexagon Flower. The pretty pouch closes with a lace zipper. Apart from the hexagon flower - which is hand stitched - it's all straight line sewing. You could even leave off the hexies to make it even simpler.
Have you made anything with a lace zipper? If you know of a good online store that sells lace zips, let me know in the comments.

No, I've never used a lace zipper myself, but in the past, I had contemplated buying some. While I can't recommend an actual shop that I've had experience with, there are several dealers on eBay (with decent ratings) selling ten 16" zippers for about $4 USD.
I assume that a lace zipper would be sewn on top rather than on the bottom of a turned pocket?
We’re truly amazed at your decoration skills. This zipper looks great!ReplyDelete
