DIY Zipper Fringe Necklace. I’ve seen zipper necklaces around with fringe since 2009, but they’re still in style. I especially liked the necklace I posted from aetienne.net here. Tutorial for the above necklace at Cut Out + Keep here. *I like the charms she put on the zipper pull.
DIY Jewelry/Accessory Inspiration. This photo is from paperpatterns here (see EDIT below). There are more photos on her blog at aetienne.net here. This would be so interesting with trim, fabric, etc… sewed a long side the zipper. The possibilities are endless. *EDIT: She actually sells this fringed zip necklace for $15 (a great price) at paperpatterns here (that was in 2010 so not sure they are available now – I’ve emailed her because I’m interested in one).
DIY Zip-Itself Tetrahedron Coin Purse. This craft is so hard to describe because it starts out as this flat zipper that when you zip it turns into a little purse, so you only need a zipper and a ribbon. Found at Craft Passion here. This is how they describe it:
This zip-itself coin purse is truly an amazing and creative handmade design… zip-up to a tetrahedron shaped coin purse, unzip to a long ribbon. This zip-itself coin purse is made from 2 simple materials that you can get from the shop easily – ribbon and zipper.
