I had this cute brown and white polka dot fabric in my stash and finally made it into stuff.

First, a Hobo style purse:



Inside:



I also make a zippered make-up bag. I'm still a little shaky on using zippers, but not too shabby:



Closeup of fun zipper pull I made:

I love your pull! What stuff did you gather to put it together? I want to make some pulls for my bags, but I have no idea what types of findings, jumps etc I need. I want them to be unique as well.  So, I want to use found stuff. What size items would you use for a 6-7 inch zipper on a cosmetic bag?

Nope. No pattern, I made it up. I am surprised how good it turned out!

For the pull, I used a lampwork glass flamingo bead that I ordered from Oriental Trading. I put a small black seed bead on the end of a head pin, then put on the flamingo. Next I bent the end of the head pin to make a loop. I attached the loop to a spring clasp. That was it. As far as found items, buttons always are cool. Especially those old big coat buttons. You can attach stuff to the back of those pretty easy. Seashells would also work.
