I tried making one but mine look crappy too! I don't think that zipper flowers are my thing.

My first one looked crappy - my second one looks better! I did a combo of sewing, gathering, then gluing about 3-4 inches at a time. so that it had some texture to it - not just a spiral. That probably doesnt make a lot of sense. lol

But, I am hopeful that my 3rd will be even better!

Gluing? Maybe that's what I'm missing...I will try again...I can't give up, I just got 25 zippers from the group buy!

Ladies - I posted one of the first zipper flowers on here not long ago and I didn't do any of it with a thread and needle. It was all done by hot glueing. Let me tell you that I tried sewing and it did NOT come out like I liked it to. I would do it with glue. I arrange a little section with my fingers and hold it so that creases form and then pull back and dab some glue. You don't need much glue at first but to tack it on. When I'm all done, I'll go back from the back of the flower and add glue to make it stronger and then cover the back with some felt circles. Hope that helps you ladies some.

My first one I only sewed and it did not look good - just a spiral, no shape to it at all.

The glue REALLY made a difference!

22" zipper... use one side per rose.

Maybe I just rock! lol
Really once I'm done w/ my rose I use felt circles and hot glue them on the back.. Smash the rose down and it will look better... TRY that.
