One of the projects for my May Small Project Sew Along required some zippers.  I have a good number of black and white zippers on hand, along with a few colors, but not enough of the colors I needed.  I came across a great little etsy shop called Zipit, which sells zippers in bulk.  You can choose exactly the colors you want, or buy assortments.  I may have gotten a little carried away.

100 assorted 9 inch zippers + 25 assorted 12 inch zippers.
There's a color card, too, in case you want to choose your own colors.
The 9 inch worked out to be 30 cents each; the 12 inch were 53 cents each.
Shipping on the whole package was $5.35 for Priority Mail.

Zipper beautiful-ness!

Aren't these pretty?

Combine a few zippers with this other pile of goodies
and I hope to end up with #19 on my project list.  

Any guesses what these goodies will end up being?

  1. Eek! I love all those pretty colors!! I have also ordered from Zipit! Great little shop. Way to go on getting so many things crossed off your list. You are way ahead of me! Hope you get #19 crossed off soon. Smiles~Beth

  2. LOL! Wow that's a little more overboard than I'd get ... though admittedly I would probably use them all in my time, lol! Good luck in finishing #19!!! Looking forward to seeing what you have planned!!
