Terry Atkinson and Joan Hawley have made zippers the new fashion statement – and the must see at Market. Joan figured out a way to remove the start and stop from zippers – and then add the pull AFTER it is sewn into your project! No more trying to sew around them! This One-Zip technique works with polyester, all-purpose zippers by Atkinson Designs, Coats & Clark, Talon, and YKK. (It does not work with invisible, metal, sport weight, or Sullivan brand zippers.)

This lanyard-style key fob pattern includes the hardware to complete two wrist size versions. Clip to a pouch for an instant wristlet! Use the One-Zip technique to cut the zipper, sew one side of the zipper in straight and flat, bend to make loop, then use Joan’s trick to easily add one or more zipper pulls. If you would like to make a true lanyard, do what Terry does – use two 22″ zippers sewn to create a 44″ length.
Since you are basically getting two zippers for the price of one, additional zipper pulls are available. There are at least 30 per pack of assorted colors. Combine your favorite colors for an additional design element.
