Good idea! Actually, I did that once before on a purchased clutch that was covered with zippers. I made a shoulder strap by stitching a long zipper to a strip of ultrasuede (or was it real leather?)and attached it to the bag with the metal teeth uppermost, so they wouldn't catch on delicate blouse fabric or rub on bare shoulders. The long length of zipper looked cool!

Really a fun yet edgy look for a simple bag. Maybe you can take a really long zipper and adhere it to a leather strap and add it to your clutch to make it a shoulder bag? Very nice!

As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
