VickiT left a comment on my first post informing me of a great place to purchase separating sleeping bag zippers! Thanks Vicki! And as I thought about it, I realized I didn't mention my favorite places to purchase some of the other supplies.
Vicki told me about WAWAK, which has their own site plus I found them on Etsy. Here is the link to their separating sleeping bag zippers: http://www.wawak.com/products/category.cfm/cid/731/-10-Molded-Plastic-Sleeping-Bag-/
I actually did end up purchasing those exact zippers from them. I realize also that in my first post I said you'll need a zipper that is 120 inches long. If you aren't using separating zippers - that length will make it easy to adjust it to the length you want.
The zippers I bought are 108 inches. That will leave about 12 inches at the top that won't be zippered (is that a word?). Anyway, I figure that's probably a good thing since I'll be inserting a pillow, and it will be nice to have some wiggle room and not feel like your suffocating when it's zipped all the way up! :)
As for other materials, here are a few spots that are my new go-to for certain fabrics. If you have favorite shops, give a shout out! I love learning about new places!
Minky: Hawthorne Threads has the BEST prices I've found on minky. Plus they have great standard shipping rates. And if you don't know about their tiered pricing, it's awesome! Especially when purchasing in larger quantities, or larger cuts - the more you buy, the more you save. Check it out.. Their color selection is pretty decent as well.
If you have a favorite spot for any of the other supplies, let us know in the comments! I'll add to this list as I find more great places to shop! :)
