My favourite zipper pulls

Adding a detail to the zipper pull is not only practical but also it makes your handmade pouch look more professional. Here are some of my favourite methods.

Leather lace

Cut 8" long leather lace. Thread it through the zipper pull. Tie a knot and trim the ends.

Fabric Knot Zipper Pull

This type of zipper pull only works if you have a zipper head opening that is big enough for the fabric tie to get through. It's a bit tricky to make but it's worth the effort, don't you think?

Cut a piece of fabric 8"x 2"

Wood Bead Zipper Pull

Cut 8"of cording. Thread the cording through the zipper pull. Hold the ends of the cording together, thread the wood bead. Tie a knot at desired length and trim the ends.

Short Fabric Zipper Pull

This tab is perfect for your typical nylon coil zippers.

Cut a piece of fabric 3" x 2.25"
