I purchased a box of vintage fabric pieces, all very small, at an antique shop. I needed a pouch for knitting tools so put together this one. The pink and black is the vintage piece. Rick rack is also very old, from a box my sister's son found in his garage. I have quite a few old zippers that I have inherited from older women's stashes, note that this Apple Green 20 inch zipper originally cost 65 cents.I love using old, neglected materials in my projects. Recycle, recreate. New, but connected to women who came before.
A big thank you to Anna Tolborg for posting her zipper tutorial. www.twelve22.org/2006/07/zipper_tutorial.html
