Materials Needed:

  • 1 1/2 yards Wrights® zipper trim or two 18" heavy duty separating zippers (cut off connector at bottom of zipper).
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Pin back
  • Jewelry pliers


Step 1. Fold over zipper onto itself at an angle and stitch in place. See #1.

Step 2. Begin wrapping zipper around center stitching in place as you go. See #2.

Step 3. Continue wrapping zipper around center and start to twist and fold the zipper back onto itself to add interest to your flower. See #3.

Step 4. Continue in this manner until you reach the desired flower size.

Step 5. Sew on pin back. If using zippers, add on each length by starting at the beginning and end of each piece underneath the flower.

Hint: Use jewelry pliers to push and pull needle and thread through the flower as it gets thicker.
