Zippers have always annoyed me....I am not sure why. I would just prefer buttons over zippers any day.
I think part of the reason is because every time I go to the airport I take a backpack. And every time I take a backpack....this happens.
There is nothing that makes me more annoyed then that.
So recently my boyfriend told me his zipper on one of his work pants was broken. And I being the crafty person I am volunteered to fix it. Little did I know it would be broken in the way I hate the most....
UGH. That is all I could think looking at the zipper. but I needed to fix it. I promised and now I will. So here is a tutorial I hope you enjoy and use.
Drag the pull to the bottom of the zipper leaving about half an inch below the pull!
Make a tiny cut on the opposite side and slide your zipper on the track!
Wooohoooo it's fixed! But not really...
Now we have this tiny little hole....
All you have to do is whip stitch a TEENY bit above the hole on on top of the hole, It doesn't have to be perfect but try to be careful and not make it bulky.
It should look like this once you are done!
And now you have a fixed zipper!
Now this will never ever happen to you again! Just always keep a sewing kit with you!
