For so many people zippers are a scary thing to sew!  We are here to tell you, no need to fear!  We have so many projects that will teach you how to insert a zipper with ease!

Many of our students have mastered the skills of our Level 1 sewing projects and are moving on to Level 2.  This is so exciting for us to see our students progress and really take on a love of sewing! On Level 2, one of the skills they learn is zippers.  Here are a few samples of projects with zippers.

Who doesn't have an I-pad, Kindle, or some kind of electronic they carry around with them? This is the perfect project to protect those valuables.  With this I-pad cover, they will learn so many skills like putting in a zipper, binding, and quilting.  What a great project packed with different techniques!

This coin purse looks easy, but with the size of it, it's harder than it looks!  Putting a zipper in a small coin purse is the prefect way to keep all that spare change at bay.  What a fun, quick project to make for those summer days coming up when you need to throw your money in your swim bag for a days adventure!

And last, we have a fantastic new skirt that anyone will love!  It is packed with skill building techniques!  Learn how to make a flounce, flat felled seams, invisible zippers and facings.

Enjoy your day and  Happy Sewing!!
