ONE MORE ZIPPER FLOWER

I'm still away playing but in my absence here's another zipper flower to perhaps inspire you......

This one was made by rolling the full width and length of a small plastic tooth zipper....tacking together as it formed.  It really doesn't look all that difficult but it was surprisingly time consuming.  The zipper tape is thick and stiff, combine that with the stiffness of the zipper...well you get the idea.

The leaves (here and on the previous zipper flowers) came from a piece of hand dyed cotton batting made by and gifted to me from my fiber friend Gen. The color and texture were just right!  They were simply hand embroidered in place which provides a little dimension.
