    Default Q: What can I use as a closure?

    I am making this make-up bag. >> Click me to see

    It says to use a zipper, but I am wondering if I can skip the zipper and use something else.

    So... what would you use to keep it closed?


    ETA: Hopefully the link it fixed now, thank you Judi for letting me know!

    Will the inside of the bag be lined? If so, could you do a velcro enclosure? If not, can you do an I-Cord loop type thing and attach a button on the other side. Loop the I-Cord thing over the button to hold close?

    i would add a few rows to one side - so the one side folded over the top and do a loop with a crocheted; knitted button type of thing .

    I would move the flower and have a loop to go around the flower for the closure....super cute bag, btw.

    I was going to suggest the button and loop to but I love the idea of moving the flower and making the loop go over that instead suggested by VanVivCam. Show us the finished product when you get a chance , Its really cute!
