Make A Zipper!!

When a project becomes ‘several’ projects it’s time to look for some money saving tips!!  Erin started out wanting to learn how to put a zipper in and making a Wet Bag.  She went from ‘frogs to Paris’ and has had a great time.  She used PUL fabric (Polyurethane Laminate) which is waterproof and you will find it in the diaper section of JoAnn’s, to line her bags.  The first 2 bags are waterproof and the rest are zipper quilted pouches.  She even started adding loops to her pouches.

The wet bags are great for beach goers, swimmers and new moms that may need a way to ‘seal in the mess’ and keep the rest of the stuff dry.  The PUL fabric is washable, just check the end of the bolt for washing instructions.  I’ve used PUL to make cloth baby diapers and I can attest that it truly is waterproof!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, Erin has been buying A LOT of zippers and one of the things I shared with her was that you can purchase zippers on a roll!!  They have many different colors and strengths.  I personally own black, white, cream and beige now and bought them from Amazon. 5 1/2 Yard Make A Zipper Kit with 12 pulls  These projects that she’s made make wonderful gifts and personal items that you can use at home.  I have to admit that I always love getting something I can use.  They also make great gifts that you can put a gift card or smaller item into!

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner for those of us that sew. Time to put together a list of fun, quick gifts to make and a list of supplies!!
