Zipper pencil cases

I saw these zipper pencil cases for sale in the post office yesterday, and thought what a great recycled sewing idea.  I have a stack of op-shopped zippers!

Take a bunch of unwanted zippers, sew together, leave one zipper tag in place for opening and voila, you have a pencil case, or coin purse etc


  1. Cool for a purse. May have to try this- Reverse Garbage in Sydney has hundreds of zippers. Hundreds!
