Continuous Zip and Accessories
Continuous zip is sold as a length, so you can cut it to the required size. The zip pull is separate and this way you can mix and match and create truly individual one of a kind zips.
You can sew over the bottom of the zip to create a 'stop' or use a metal zip stop, pressed on with pliers. You can also sew a small length of tape or ribbon over the end. This is also done when shortening a ready made closed end zip shortened from the bottom)
This section also contains the top stops, used when you need to shorten an open ended zip, or to prevent your zipper pulling off the top is its not sewn into your project at the top.
