Zipper Flower Tutorials

Here is how I made my Daisy 6 petal zipper flower. My finished flower is about 2 1/2 inches wide, if you want a bigger flower make bigger petals. I was going with what I could get out of the zipper I had.

I started with a 19" zipper. I separated the zipper and using one side made one flower.
I cut my zipper into 6 2.5" pieces...leaving what was left for the center.

Next I ran my needle of thread through to make a gathering stitch:

I gathered the petal and looped it over it self and stitched it together:

I then stitched it to a scrap of felt:  You could just hot glue it down as well.

Keep doing that 6 times.

I then gathered my piece for the center and wound that around and tacked it in. Covered it with a little gem and your set!
