Coats and Clark Zipper Challenge Project Reveal!

Last meeting, the officers of the Austin Modern Quilt Guild announced a Coats and Clark zipper challenge.  We were all given three 7" zippers and told to make whatever we wanted as long as we used at least one of the zippers.  Projects are due tomorrow at our meeting.  We're all going to vote on which project we like best and the winner gets a whole bundle of shot cottons fat eighths!  




Here's my entry.  I've seen a lot of variations of the book turned into a purse thing, and here's my interpretation.  I used two of the zippers, making the green flowers out of one and the polka dot zipper opens to a little side pouch.  I did add a magnetic snap to make sure the goodies don't fall out!  I'm pretty pleased with how it came together - lots of Clover clips and E-6000 glue!  I'll let you know if I win :)
