If you saw yesterday's post, you may still be wondering what this...
... could possibly turn into.
Well, what do you do with a zipper?
You ZIP it, of course! So let's zip this one and see what happens!
Okay, it's turning into something. Let's keep zipping......
It makes a little coin purse!
And yes, VERY little:
Just about the right size to, say, hold your parking meter coins in your car. ;)
Or whatever else you might have in mind!
I made two of them. I sent them both to Jess. Why did I do that?! Oh, yeah... so she could blog about them to show off the ribbons. In case you didn't guess, she's the designer. You knew that, right? ;) She's designed a bunch of different ribbons. You can see them all here.
I didn't come up with this idea. I found a tutorial featured on one of the blogs I follow. You can see how to make one yourself at the Craft Passion blog here. There are other cute tutorials there, too, and I have it on good authority that the blog author, Joanne, has been experimenting with bigger ribbons and zippers! Keep an eye on her blog this week or next to see what she makes!
