These fasteners and zippers are constructed of a variety of materials. For lightweight fabrics, you need a lightweight zipper. Fasteners with plastic teeth won’t weigh fabric down, but they are still durable to withstand daily wear. For heavier fabrics, you can choose zipper teeth that are made from aluminum or even brass. These zippers are ideal for jeans and furniture covers because they can withstand more abuse without bending or breaking.Custom
Zippers come in a wide variety of sizes, but they are typically given in whole inches. When using a pattern to make clothing or other crafty items, you can find out what size zipper you need by looking at the required notions on the back of the pattern. If you see you need a longer or shorter ribbon than you can find in stores, you can purchase a zipper creator that allows you to cut the fastener to the desired length for a perfect fit on whatever you happen to be sewing.
