Zipped Bowl

Steps:

1. Cut away the cloth from all remaining zippers. Cut and remove the metal jacket pulls and the zipper ends except one. Leave one metal jacket pull on a jacket zipper after removing the cloth and extra threads. Set this zipper aside.

2. Add white glue to the rim of the wooden bowl. Place a white zipper to glued rim with teeth facing the outside of the bowl. Cut off the end when the zipper gets around the bowl. Press the end down. Let dry.

3. Add white glue next to the zipper teeth facing inside the bowl. Place white zipper teeth next to the rim zipper with the trimmed sides face-to-face. Add the zipper all around the bowl and cut off the end. Add two more rows of zippers for a total of four rows.
