What’s unique about Sallie Tomato Zippers by the Yard is they appear to look like metal, but they actually aren’t! These zippers have a nylon coil with a metallic finish, which makes them easy to cut and sew. Choose from five coil colors to match your purse hardware: silver, light gold, antique, black, and copper. Also, choose from a variety of tape colors to coordinate with your fabric!
The coil is size #5, which is ideal for handbags, backpacks, totes, laptop carriers, or they’re even fun for exposed zippers on garments!
Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoy the tutorial and conquer your fear of zippers by the yard!
