Hi all,

I'm getting ready to purchase some zippers just for purses. What are the best ones and where can you buy them?
Thanks,
Chris

I usually just pick up regular old zippers at the Fabric stores. For purses, I've used 7, 12 and 16 inch sizes. Are you starting on the purse pattern you showed me a few months ago?

Cleaner's Supply. Even if you only get one, they're cheaper than Joann's even including shipping! I haven't tried using a separating zipper (or the separate rolls where you put the stop and slide on), but I would think it would be easier to put into a purse than a regular zipper.

I prefer YKK toothed zippers for purses from ZipperStop. (nayy)

I prefer the #4.5 from Zipperstop - they aren't so thick as what you find on fleece outerwear but still more sturdy than regular dress zippers - and they have a longer zipper pull than dress zippers, which is better for purses.

I am looking for a source to buy #4 coil (1 yd) and 2 slides. zipperlady.com recommended #5 coil, but the least amount available is 5 yd. I am making the Green Pepper "wave" bag (#F702).
