How to: make a flower brooch from a zip
Zips are rather odd creatures with their shiny teeth and fabric. A lone zip can be a sad thing without a piece of clothing attached but here's a clever and quick little idea that turns your zip into something blooming marvellous.
This Zipper-Flower Tutorial from Want2Scrap turns a unloved zip into a fine flower in a few easy peasy stitches. Stick a brooch pin on the back and you've got yourself a funky little accessory quicker than you can 'Happy mother's day'.
