I am going to make us a new wetbag and an everyday tote. There are so many choices out there. Is there a zipper I must/must not use for these projects? What about the double sided zippers, can they be used?

The teeth in the zipper on our current wetbag are coming undone. I want to definately use something more substantial in the one that I make. Some of the zippers have big strudy teeth, can these be used?

Thanks for your help!

I just used standard plastic dress zippers (Coat's brand) and they've been fine so far, in use almost a year.

Thanks mama! Might try those, but am looking for something a little more substantial and am wondering if anyone has any experience/suggestions.

You might ask the WAHM at http://happytushies.com/store/Default.asp

I've heard her wetbags are great. She might tell you what kind she uses.

Just a thought. I'd be interested to know.

I used a sports style zipper (heavy duty) for one project, it was just from walmart but I'm sure there are more like it out there.

Thnks mama!

Will the large toothed zippers be workable for these type of bags?
