View Full Version : Online source for zippers, hardware for a purse

02-18-2007, 07:37 PM
Hi all,

I'm making a Noni Adventure bag and the pattern calls for a purse (or sport or heavyweight jacket) zipper and metal purse rings.

I went to both Michaels and Joann's this afternoon and came up with nothing.

Any ideas for an online source for that kind of stuff?

Thanks in advance!

Webs (http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-0-1088/0/1453/) has some bag handles, and Joann.com (http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=169462) has purse accessories including zippers and handles and other closures.

(both links take you to the page where you can find those things, I hope).

Thanks for the replies.

I was hoping I could find more of a selection of rings but I think I'm going to go for a simple tortoise shell like ring. :shrug:

Of course the pattern is shown with handmade silver rings and they are gorgeous.

My problem is finding the right size purse zipper (I need a 20" zipper) in a color that will compliment the yarn. I know I can hide the zipper when I place it but it will bother me if it is too far off.

I attached a picture of the bag in case anyone was interested.
