eclectic elements pattern though the stenciling

Brilliant idea to use the zipper! And it would have taken me way more than two tries to get it positioned so perfectly, well done! Deb xo

Seriously, when did you decide to add the zipper. This is way creepier and much more eerie. I am going to have nightmares about this. That's a good thing in case you mis understand! Can I link this up to my Facebook page to show it off?
