Sophia Carry-All -- zipper problem

I'm having a hard time finding a double pull zipper for this bag. The Coats & Clark Purse Zipper called for in the pattern only comes in "neutral colors" which are all dark - black, navy, and a manly brown color. I need a zipper in white, light grey, or light pink. I posted my dilemma on the Monkey Foot Designs & Stacey Sews Flickr sew along, but the sew along for the Sophia bag was over a couple months ago. I'm hoping someone might have an idea.


  1. I think we all got stuck with the same zipper issue - I settled on black. I even did a search online and found out that those are the only colors that Coat & Clark make. Maybe you could write into Sew News magazine - they have a section on their site with "where to find" items.

  2. would this help you? http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp;jsessionid=SSNLRNA0MB2Q4P4SY5CFAFJ50LD3OUPU?CATID=cat2849&PRODID=prd13189&_requestid=364641

  3. I did another search ... maybe this?
