Knit Monsters for Christmas

This is such a cute little present that you can make for all the kiddos on your list.  The pattern is at Michael's Canada.  Make this a wristlet for lunch money.

I have red "mouth" zippers on my website: Monster Mouths

Wish Upon A Quilt in Raleigh, NC has a class to make this very cute tuffet.

If you need legs, I have them on my website: TheZipperLady.com
Legs are under workroom supplies in the left menu.

Great for a little girl's room with all the fabric scraps from her draperies, bed skirt, duvet cover, pillows.

Flanged Pillows

I wanted to pass along these pictures from a workroom using my invisible zippers in pillows & also her comments:

" Hi Alicia,
I am so glad that I ordered all that zippering while I was at the beach last week!  I finished up and delivered 4 pillows today and I want to share a couple of pictures with you.  Two of the pillows had a micro-welt and then a 1.5" flange with mitered corners!  Would love to see a how-to video on easiest way to construct this with the invisible zippering.  I managed but it did take me too long.

                                  --- Jane"

Great Job Jane!

Am working on new video tutorials today..... stay tuned.
