XXIP-IT




I sewed my first zipper today! V. wanted me to make this little guy from the Monsters sewing book I mentioned a few days ago. I didn't realize he had a zipper mouth until I had him all cut out. {Way to read those instructions, hu?}



I looked in my tin that has a bunch of old sewing stuff in it... from the 50's. There were a few zippers in there, but none the right size. SO... I found a tan one that told me how to make it shorter on the back. {who knew???} So, I did and fit it to this guys' mouth and sandwiched it between the inner mouth and his outer mouth and here he is! V. LOVES him. He is supposed to feed him marbles and loose change.



Mouth open....



Mouth almost closed! He reminds me of a Boobah. I wouldn't have chosen this one, but V. loved him.

GOOD HEAVENS GIRL....Impressed. Zippers terrify me. I'll go completely out of my way to avoid them. I'm tellin ya, you're inspiring me to step outside of my sewing box.

I love sewing zippers, and I for one NEVER read the directions first! Otherwise I would not have a reason to keep extras of everything in my drawer when I "discover" that I forgot to get part of it... Have a great Sunday.
