    OOOHHH I have some 60’s patterns just calling out for vintage zippers like the ones in “Zipper Accents” ! Cute dresses with a big metalic zipper going down the front- making the zipper part of the decorations!

    I have already made a bag using the Indygo Junction accents. I rolled them up like snails and attached them to two pockets I put on the front of the bag. If I was the lucky winner, I would make another bag to give to my sister who has requested one of her very own.

    I don’t know. Flowers seem to be the thing to do, but I would like to think of something a little different. Maybe some detailing on a shirt or something. Hmmm….

    I actually like the flower on the right hand picture that she made. Awesome! I am always looking for ways to make the “same old clothes” more unique and one of a kind.
