DIY Repairing A Zipper

Sometimes you have a neat bag that you take with you almost everywhere, then unfortunately the zipper goes bad. Well you do not have to toss the bag out or go through the hassle of removing the zip and replacing it.

In this week’s blog I repair the zipper of one of my favorite bags in less than five minutes. Check out the video below and see how you can repair your zipper as well.


Bring the zipper head down to the end of the zip or as far down as it will go. Then clip the zip. Place the cut end back into the zip head and just zip the zip. Be sure to tack the cut end so that the zipper head does not come off when your opening and closing the zip.

I grew up seeing my mother on the sewing machine a lot. Our house was always filled with fabric and I was bitten by the sewing bug at an early age. Today, in addition to Photography, I also make accessories and children’s clothing, under the Your Wardrobe Label.
