Description

I HAVE TO UPLOAD IT AGAIN< CAUSE IT WASN’T TRANSFERRED HERE FROM OLD BURDA
It’s a brooch for my navy blue dress. I just take two parts of zipper [ I lost its main part to fasten, I don’t know how it’s called in English:]], rolled them and assembled using thread and needle. It’s was hard cause zipper is really hard to operate with but I managed. Then attached safety pin and voila!;]

I uploaded some new pics of the back. I glued on some leather [unfortunately I have dark green one, not red] and safety pin to look neatly:)

Material Notes

red metal zipper, safety pin, scrap of leather
