Oh, zippers

I'd like you to meet my nemesis:
(Please pardon my crappy pictures. The light was gone outside when I took these.)

My nemesis

I've spent the last couple days cranking these out. I decided they could either be wristlets or cosmetics bags. Anywho, I busted a needle on this one, and it broke oh so gloriously. Luckily for me, I happened to be blinking at the exact moment that it broke. A piece of the needle hit me in the eyelid. That's right, the eyelid. I think I need to find some cool safety goggles for sewing. It's dangerous work.

I use recycled zippers, and I apparently didn't test this one enough. When I was taking pictures I opened it, and it has decided to never close again. I actually broke some of its teeth trying to close it. It stinks that I subjected myself to such danger to finish it, and now it doesn't even work.

These do work though:

Park Slope

Black and yellow


Felix and I had a great trip to the park yesterday also. He kicked my butt at imaginary basketball.
