I can't tell you how many times I've made a trip to Fabricville just to get a zipper.
As you probably know, I love making small projects and many of those projects involve a zipper. I stumbled across an ad for Zipit, which is an Etsy shop. They sell zippers in various sizes and colors.
I don't know why I never thought of it before, but I think it would be so convenient to have a good stash of zippers. So, I ordered a bunch of 9" and 10" zips for my smaller projects, and a bunch of 18" for my larger projects (like those addictive Lazy Girl Take-Along bags). It was exciting to get them today by mail and I'm even more excited to think about all the projects I'm going to make with them.
