How to: Shorten a Zipper (quick and neat way!)

Hello Darlings!

Today I have a new tutorial prepared on how to shorten a plastic zipper! I recently showed this technique on my Instagram and figured I would share it here, too.

This technique is very simple and easy to do, but gives beautiful and - most importantly - secure finish to a shortened zipper. This technique is suited for plastic zippers, so do not use it on metal ones - there's a different technique for it!

I have prepared this tutorial in both video and photo step-by-step formats, so feel free to choose which one is more suitable you! Click below to watch video, or scroll down for the photos.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
