Zipper Flowers - Zip de Bloom

This piece is called "Zip de Bloom".  Each flower and insect is made from zips.  Metal zips can be very costly and restricting in their colour range.  I have managed to successfully dye metal zips with a polyester dye supplied by Made on Marion in Wellington NZ.  Key to a successful zip flower is ensuring you use matching thread.

Close up of my insects.  If you enjoy handwork then give this art form a go.
