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.

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?
