You know I love to share stuff with you . . .

I wanted to give you a little glimpse of my seam binding collection.
I am so in love with Zipperstop.com
and I think they know me by my first name!!!

What I wanted to share with you is
a little bit about their beautiful color selection.
I can only hope that it helps you when you order yours :)

First a few photos.....
(Remember to click any photo below TWICE
to enlarge as big as possible)








Pretty, huh???
Well, I've tried to describe the colors just a little bit below.
First you will see the name of the color from Zipperstop....
Then you will see my take on the color ~
remember, this is just my opinion, OK :)

I hope this helps if you've been wondering about the different shades.....
OH, and are you needing the perfect fall rust/orange for your
fall and halloween projects?
LONDON TAN is perfect!
 
If you should order a roll (or two)....
Please tell them, The Feathered Nest sent you!!!!!!






I have found the most beautiful tutorial for you!!!!
Lynn of Her Creative Spirit has shared on her blog
Think outside the box on these too sweet friends ~
you know I adore all things nature inspired....
but what else could we sandwich between these layers????




Wishing you a most wonderful Monday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Great post. The seam binding looks like vintage ribbon in the photos. There are a lot of possibilities for the bookmarks too.

Very pretty, Dawn! Thanks for the tip on the color for Fall; I'm sure I will be looking for rusts/coppers, etc. Love those bookmarks. My thought was feathers sandwiched between. I will have to go check out her post as I have actually been keeping some things on the side that I thought would make good bookmarks.

Hey Sweetie,
I just ordered fig & havana, of course I told Jeff you sent me! You are saving all of us a ton of money buying this yummy stuff by the 100 yard roll vs. 3 yards for $7 on etsy. LOL That tutorial is amazing! I know why you love it! I'll be trying it soon. Lisa

Claudia said...

Thanks so much for this information, Dawn! I've been wanting to gather some seam binding and these colors are luscious!

Thank you for sharing, I will go take a peek. So how is Dawn? I haven't been getting around much in Ole Blogland. Summer is so busy. And I am still trying to learn how to use this new computer. I am still fighting the battle to lose more weight, it is slow. But I feel better and that is worth so much.
I am glad you like the little cottages. They are fun. Life is good, hugs, Mary

Lynn said...

Hi Dawn,
I am so happy you enjoyed my tutorial, and yes, you can do lots of creative things with the wax paper and glue, I hope everyone get's inspired, thanks for sharing with your readers:)

I am also a fan of Zipperstop, I found them on Ebay a couple of years ago. I used Havana on the bookmarks shown here, I think so far it is my favorite shade, I seem to use it a lot. They ship so fast too, even to Canada it only takes a few days, I don't know how they do that LOL

My Shabby Roses said...

I love Zipperstop too Dawn, I discovered them a few years back. They have such a wide range of colors to choose from. I enjoyed your description of the colors. I'm sure you described them more accurately then the name that appears on them!
Have a great Monday!

Dawn said...

I have not been there yet! Guess where I will be searching through? Thanks for the great look at the colors.

Jann said...

Beautiful seam binding--it looks almost like silk ribbon, and the colors are wonderful! Lynn's bookmarks are precious--thank you for sharing!

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

I so appreciate you labeling these with the color names!
I first found out about these from Lisa at Paper Cowgirl. I need to get some, they really are terrific! :-)

TinyBear said...

I love that seambinding too, and get mine from them already :D
All those colors are fabolous.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Dawn,
Thanks for the information on the seam bindings from zipper stop.com. I am going to check it out.
Love those sweet tags.

hugs

I love Zipperstop, too. I think I figured that if you buy in bulk to save on shipping, its about 8 cents a yard- you can be very extravegent with your wrapping at that price. I think my current favorites colors are champagne and havana- but after seeing your colors, I might have to order some of the rose beige and fig beige and eggshell and oatmeal.....

Becky from Tennessee said...

Oh Dawn, I ordered their color chart
and love all the colors...although
the small samples are a little difficult
to figure out. I'm so glad you have
given us your take on the colors. I've
ordered some of the very same colors that
you have. Do you have a pretty green?? I
haven't been able to decide on one yet
because there are so many that are so close
in shade.
Thanks for the tutorial.
Becky

Miss Sandy said...

I fell in love with this seam binding after I bought a roll from your shop a while back. Thanks for clarifying the colors. I ordered some that was not exactly what I wanted but I did an over dye to get the right shade. Thanks for the lovely tutorial link, I am going to give it a try. Have a great week!

Barbara Jean said...

Thanks Dawn.
Hope you have a great week!!
