Tips for Sewing with Metal Zippers

If you’ve avoided sewing with metal zippers I think you’ll find they are easier to work with than you think!

I used a metal zipper for this Winslet Wallet.


I created a tutorial video to give a few tips for adding metal zippers in bag making.  I hope you find it helpful!


I personally love using metal zippers.  I find they are especially durable and hold up to daily use well. They also add a unique look to bags, pouches and wallets.



I purchase most of my metal zippers from the Etsy shop, Zipit Zippers.  I’ve bought zippers from this seller for years and am so impressed with the outstanding quality of her products.


Do you have any tips for sewing with metal zippers?  I’d love to hear them!
