Sallie Tomato #5 Zippers by the Yard contain 3 yards of nylon zipper tape and 9 matching metal pulls. Coordinate the zipper tape color with your fabric and match the nylon coil color with your purse hardware!
Easily cut and sew through the nylon teeth, while achieving the professional appearance of metal teeth. There is no need to worry about breaking a needle when you're using these zippers! The wider zipper tape also helps for easy insertion into your project. This size zipper is best used on the top of handbags, backpacks, totes, laptop carriers, and more!
Save money and time by using zippers by the yard! Cut the length of zipper you need, when you need it, for minimal waste. Also, use zippers by the yard to create single or double slide zippers of any length, up to 108-inches! Double slide zippers open from the middle out, which is ideal for luggage style bags, bowler bags, handbags, and more.

The zipper pulls will not be attached to the zipper tape in the package. You can easily attach the pulls as needed by simply sliding the rounded end (with two openings) onto the end of the tape. Do this by inserting each side of the zipper chain into each side of the pull, and carefully lining up the ends so they are even. Then, slide the pull onto the tape. I recommend to mark the desired length of your zipper, then stay stitch each end before cutting.
Zippers by the yard are very easy to use, so please don’t be discouraged if your coil doesn’t line up perfectly on the first try! With a bit of practice, you’ll realize just how easy they are to use!
