Altered Hair Clip - Maya Road Zipper Trim

I got Maya Road Zipper Trim for May's DT kit and I wanted to make something fun out of it. And I thought of hair fun!

Here's how I created the flower out of the zip...

First separate the zipper, so you will get only one side of it. For the zipper flower I created, the length was 12".

Then, just sew "slip-stitch" until till the end.

Once you get to the end, do not end your knot but to slowly pull the thread so the thread will gather.

Once you are happy with it, sew a knot at the end and cut off the excess of the thread. Next, all you have to do is to roll the zipper. As you go along, remember to adhere fabric glue/hot glue to secure it.

Sew a Maya Road Wooden Button at the top and voila... here's your zipper flower :)

Adhere the zipper flower onto the hair clip and you are good to use it!

Hope you will try this zipper flower. This is perfect for layout, card and of your altered projects! Have fun trying :)

Clip from a zipper, a clever idea indeed! This is utterly G-E-N-I-U-S. You inspire me to make a bit experiment with my junks. Thanks a lot for tutorial!
