you guys know i love ya, right? well, i’m sharing the love and showin you how i make my zipper daisies :)
first, separate your zipper and remove the pull tab.
sew a basting stitch along the side opposite of the zipper, as close to the edge as you can without going off.
gather your zipper. be very careful not to break a thread! (easier said than done, i know)
create a small petal.
hot glue in place and trim excess. then singe or fray check the edges to prevent fraying.
cut a small circle of felt.
and glue the petal on the outside.
keep making petals and gluing the around the felt.
take the excess zipper and remove the threads.
singe/fray check the ends and glue in a circle in the center of your flower like i did on my previous zipper flowers.
wrap all the way around until you’ve used all remaining zipper.
add a rhinestone to the center and you’re done!
this tutorial is for personal use only. if you’d like to purchase a zipper daisy, i have a few listed in my shop. if you’re looking for a particular color, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
