I'm just about to start making some new cushion covers for our couch cushions but have been pushing the project back as it means making a trip to the shops to pick up some zippers - then I remembered the big bag of old lady zippers in the cupboard and problem solved!!
I didn't think I would ever use them, still overcoming my issues with second-hand stuff, but if it means saving me a trip to the shops and a bit of money I think I'm going to face my issues and get on with it!
There are actually some really cool zippers in the stash...lots of retro looking ones and funky shaped pulls. Even some brand new ones still in their vintage packaging.
I'll definitley be remembering to dive into my zipper collection next time I need to sew something with zippers, who knows what treasures I will find?! Perhaps I'll make one of these funky no-fabric zippered pouches just to use some of them up!
