Use this clever zipper trick to open one when you have sewn your project up without remembering to open the zipper first – oops!
Have you ever sewn up a pouch or pencil case, then realised that you left the zipper closed and now you can’t turn it through?!
That’s what I did yesterday while making new pencil cases for my store.
But I discovered a little zipper trick.
I slipped a knitting needle into the little gap that I did have and caught the little hole in the zipper pull. Then I could push the zipper open – Yay!
Much quicker than having to unpick the seam and sew it up again.
