feeling zippy

today.  I scrapped with a zipper and it was fun!  I was cleaning out a drawer and found a broken zip that I tucked in there for a completely unknown reason.  As I rolled it up to toss it, inspiration struck.  It looked just like the ribbon flowers I am loving making right now.  I stitched it up and got ready to scrap.

I decided to use the My Mind's Eye sketch #15 as my starting point.  I am really enjoying playing along with their excellent sketches.  Here it is:

And here is my version of it.  Simple, but lovely. After adding the zipper rose, I hand stitched the other half of the zipper as a twisty border.  I really love the look and may need to break another zipper soon.

Off to peek in the junk drawer to see what else I might find.

  3. I agree - Simple, but BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for playing along with us.

    p.s. Great job using the zipper! I especially love how you used it for the twisty border.
