I am delving more and more back into my crafting roots, playing with beads and flowers and jewelry. Katie got a plain zippered hoodie jacket for Christmas and being a teen, she loves to accessorize. I knew she would be game for me accessorizing this jacket!
I created a charm using the Epiphany Crafts Heart 25 Shape Studio to make a custom embellishment using some Bella Blvd paper that Katie loved. I mounted the embellie to an Epiphany Crafts Heart 25 Charm Setting–I love beaded detail along the edges of the heart! Next I adhered the heart to part of a felt flower, also by Epiphany Crafts, sandwiching a bow made with American Crafts ribbon between the charm and flower. Then I threaded a row of beads onto a eye pin and attached that to the charm with a jump ring. Next I attached the eye pin to the zipper. Easy peasy!
Katie can easily change the zipper pull to match the season or her outfits, especially if I add a clasp to attach it to the zipper pull rather than a jump ring.
