    I have enough brooches in my life, and can only commit to one purse at a time, so I’d like to layer some of them to make a shoulder strap for a tank top, then use another one as piping for the neckline!

    I’d probably make a brooch and that way I could pin it to the hip of my daughter’s dress or one of my bags or shirts.

    A cocktail hat, I love them so much (I wear them all the time!) and the zipper flower would look simply adorable, to go with some more playfully colored outfits.

    Of course, I’d have to make adorable flower embellishments for Chloe’s summer wardrobe. Chloe is a 2-year-old fashionista in the making who is fascinated by all things new, different and definitely feminine; it would be my challenge to put zipper flowers at the top of her list. I’d also think about incorporating zippers into the fabric collages which I make from time to time.

    I’ve seen a lot of zipper flowers lately and I’ve been wanting to try it, so this will be the perfect opportunity.

    I would make a zipper brooch because you can accessorize many outfits with a brooch and if there is enough trim remaining I would use it on a Chanel-type jacket.

    I’d use the zipper as a trim round the pockets on a pair of jeans!

    I would love to make clip-on shoe embellishments for my collection of black ballet flats – it would make coordinating footwear a lot more fun.
