Default What Would You Do With A Zipper That Has a Lacy Tape?

I found these zippers on etsy and Geta talks about them in this blogpost (includes a picture of what I'm talking about): http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.co...e-zippers.html .

I love the idea of these zippers but I don't know how I would use them. Any ideas?

those are so cute. they'd definitely need a surface application... looks like something for a baby or a teen girl.

Great zippers! They would look cute on my panty coin purses! Anything that has a difficult zipper to inset would be easy with a top stitch zipper...purses, phone or iPod cases, pillow zipper, zipper I Spy squares on quilts...

Those are adorable. I just ordered them. I am making zipper purses for granddaughters and those are perfect.

They would look cute as pocket decorations on jeans...or to modify the front of a tank top, if you're into sewing clothes, that is.

Those would be so cute on things I make for my four year old DGD. They would look good on bags and if you like to cut up sweat shirts and make jackets they would make a cute closure.

I'm getting it now. I would have to finish my edges before I insert this zipper. It was hard for me to figure out how the lace would enhance my project, but now I've got it.

you could put it on polar fleece n an unfinished edge and let the color show thru the lace. I want some of those.

I've seen these sewn to the outside of make - up bags and toiletry bags. They look appealing.

I saw something similar at JoAnns and wondered the same thing. The panty purses would be adorable with them. Thanks for the good ideas quilting peeps!
