Zippers and buckles

I did manage to finish another girl bag with the "Gucci" pink. I like how theses are coming along, now if only I don't end up with a room full of them. I think I can get 3 maybe 4 bags out of each yard of fabric. And I may just make totes with the leftovers.
I did find some cool things yesterday. How about a purse zipper. It opens two ways from the middle. How cool is that? Of course it was much more expensive than a plain zipper.
And I did find a reversible zipper. The zipper pull goes around a channel so that it can work from either side. A pretty cool find.

Then there are these buckles for the reversible bag. Instead of two sets of handles, you can just switch them around and buckle them to the other side. Easy-peasy!
So I actually enjoyed myself in "that store". This weekend I hope to accomplish more bags and maybe start on the boy bags.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Take care, Brandie
