Zippers and Yarn

Today I went to a new bargain store where I got individually packaged acrylic yarn for $1. a skein.  I got red and pink to make something to wear with my 'red, pink, gray' wardrobe theme.

They also had nylon zippers, 4 for $1.00. It's a good size if I make some wallets.  They are most commonly used for A-line skirts.  I used them in Jr. High school when I first took sewing and could fit into an A-line skirt. Those were the days. Did you know you can take a long zipper and cut it shorter if you need to? A good tip to know if you ever find long zippers for a great price or if the store doesn't have the size you need.
