Thanks for posting this. You rock!
I've been interested in making some flowers with zippers when I found the pictures I attached few months ago. Your tutorial has inspired me to give it a try and to not be intimidated. By the way, all zippers at Hancock Fabrics are 50% off right now, but unfortunately the store here only had one black zipper with silver teeth. It's 18 inches long. I snagged it. Woohoo!
