Steps for Making Zipper Bracelets
Here are the steps to follow when making this accessory:

Step Two: Apply a thin layer of coordinating or clear nail polish to prevent it from fraying.
Step Three: Stitch the tips together. Measure the size of your wrist and add a few inches to it. Otherwise, it will be difficult to slide the bracelet on your wrist.
Start by feeding the needle with embroidery floss. Insert it into the designated spot between the sides where the zipper connects.
Step Four: Bind the tips and exit the needle out on the opposite edge.
Step Five: Wrap the strand around both ends to secure them. Thread the needle back through and tie a knot to secure the stitch.
Step Six: Make sure you sew the zipper tight before cutting it. Voilà! Your zipper wristband is complete!
