DIY: Zipper Bracelet

Hey guys! Here's a new post on how to make a bracelet with only zippers and studs as our materials. I'm really excited to share my newest DIY as the end result looks so much better than I expected. :DD

This is easy as long as you know how to sew. Just prepare thread, needle and scissors and we're good to go.

I was clueless, at first, on how I was going to remove the zipper slider. I couldn't remove it even with force so I just had the edge cut. photo BeFunky_DSC00854jpg_zps10b7488f.jpg

We have now two separate tapes. Place the tapes parallel to each other, with teeth on opposite sides.

Start hand sewing. Sew straight and near the edges so that the stitches won't be too visible.

You could use any embellishments. It's up to you. Pearls would look good too. I used studs for this to sustain the edgy gold and black theme.

If you have studs like mine, you don't need to cut holes. Just pierce the tape using the studs, attach them and use pliers in bending the sharps.   photo BeFunky_DSC00858jpg_zpse5cc4bb6.jpg

Finish it by sewing hooks and eye closures. If you don't have them in gold (just like me :-p), it's fine. People won't see them once you wear the bracelet.

So there! It's so easy that I decided to make two!
