    Get ahold of Doty in NYC. I think her name on here is dotcomdtcm. She's made beautiful ones and she's a very helpful person.

    Here's one I made...It was a little tedious because I used a nylon zipper. The metal ones are easier to manipulate!

    Great link - thanks - that helps me see it - I'm a visual gal!

    I think it looks doable to me. I'm gonna give it a shot today while I'm playing on the computer.

    The red nylon one is adorable ditter...I've got metal and nylon zippers inmy stash, so I'll try both and see how they work.
