Zippers and Pulls
Zipit on Etsy offers YKK brand zips and extra pulls in colors and sizes for my patterns.
Size #3 is an apparel size, perfect for small projects.
Size #5 has larger teeth and is ideal for a medium to large purse or tote.
Important Zipper Notes for our One-Zip projects including Sweetpea Pods, Becca Bags and Fobio:
– All zipper tape and pulls must be by the same manufacturer to work together. Example: only use YKK pulls with YKK zips. Some Coats & Clark zips are actually by Talon and will say so on the zipper pull or package.
– The One-Zip technique works with polyester, all-purpose, basic apparel zippers (size #3 or #4.5) by YKK, Coats & Clark, or Talon brands.
– One-Zip technique does not work with invisible, metal, sport weight or Sullivan’s brand zippers.
– Test zips and pulls to make sure they work together before installation.
