Time Warp?



Ok so I have these great fabric swatches...I use to work in a furniture store way back when...the fabric styles will tell the date...haha...can we say RETRO! Anyway they are only like a 8x10 ins., not big enough for much but I saved them anyway..you know what I'm talking about all you crafters..."DON'T THROW THAT OUT I CAN USE THAT FOR SOMETHING SOMEDAY!"
Well that day is here! My mom gave me a box of old zippers...mostly metal and mostly small....so I thought HUMMMM....I know something can me done with these, so I came up with the idea of these cute little wristlets.

The first one I listed on Etsy sold in like 3 minutes! I'm not kidding! How great is that :) But no worries...even though they are ONE OF A KIND I have several look alikes. Just take a peek at my Etsy shop to see.

Well I'm off to make more wristlets...enjoy your day!
