« on: March 21, 2006 11:15:12 PM »

      Huh I was at the camden markets (London, UK) one day and saw this awesome bag that had a giant zipper attached to the outside, once unzipped made the bag a bit bigger.

     Anyway I diddnt buy the bag and have since returned home Canada (boring!) but I was just wondering if you guys have seen any of these zippers (about 4inches thick) im dying to buy one and cant find any online or anywhere.

     The bag was awesome and im so sad i diddnt buy it  Cry
Heres hoping somebody out there knows what im talking about.

I know the bags you're talking about.  I bought my daughter a lunchbag that's similar to that.  It's pretty flat with a little wrist strap, when you unzip it, it becomes a very good sized lunchbag (holds a ton of stuff!), plus it's insulated.  When she's done with lunch, she smooshes it down and zips it and (hopefully) throws it in her backpack!

I haven't seen any directions for making one though.

I bought a purse on Ebay last year, with a zipper like that!  Smiley  Sadly, it broke about a month after I had it.  Not sure how to fix it.  Grr.

I found another picture of the zipper, if it will help out...

The purse I had/have is pretty neat.  It has a black zipper & all over it are images from "travel"...Paris, etc.  What, other than the zipper, did the one you saw, look like?

No luck finding a zipper to purchase yet  Sad
