Those of you who follow my blog will know that I've been using some metal zipper ends on my bags instead of making fabric ones for some time now.
They're extremely easy to install and saves loads
of time. I never liked making the fabric zipper ends. Here you can see I
used them on the Totes Ma Tote Bag by Janelle.
of you emailed me asking where I bought them from but couldn't help you
becasue I bought them from a local bag maker where I live. The hunt was
on, some of you helped out by doing a google search for them and
Samantha and Janelle also went on the hunt for them. Samantha came up
with an alternative which you can see HERE and I bought some while I was
visiting my daughter.
They're the rectangular ones at the bottom of the photo.
I thought they would be nice on pouches with a
little charm hanging from it.
But it was Janelle who found the exact same ones I have. She is now stocking them in her online shop HERE.
These have proven to be very popular and Janelle ran out very quickly
and had to order some more so don't delay and order yours before
Christmas so you can add them to bags and pouches you give as gifts to
family and friends.
Now while I'm talking about Janelle I thought it would be a good time to post the latest NCW I made for my daughter. I had made one exactly like this one to sell at the craft fair with a few others the first time I went. She fell in love with this one and said if it didn't sell she'd have it. Unfortunately for her it was the first to go so I made one for her just like it. She was over the moon with it and someone from the magazine where she started working saw it in her hand and ordered one just like it.
You can find the pattern for the NCW HERE.
Happy Sewing and hope you all had a nice Halloween.
