I’m in love with these zipper roses…lol They are everywhere, from shoes to shirts and headbands. I think they would be great for alter projects. I’m actually working on a canvas pocketbook from prima. So, here is where I got the idea:
You will have to cut off the end of the zipper that has the little metal stop. Once you cut that off you can pull the zipper apart. You will only need one half of the zipper to make one rose. Start by cutting a small felt circle to be able to sew your zipper to, you should match the felt to you zipper. Once you have cut out your circle take 2 or 3 stitches to secure the end to the felt circle.
this is the finished rose. Here are some others I made.
