Head over to the Coats & Clark Sewing Secrets blog to find out how to make this awesome little tote made out of woven zippers. Even the handles are made from zippers! Zippers are expensive if you buy them indivually in the fabric store, but there are a number of Etsy stores where you can buy them in bulk and in a wider range of colors. Estate sales are another source of inexpensive zippers, though your color choices will be limited. Get the tutorial.
