If the pull tab comes off your zipper, you have a couple of
choices. An easy fix to save money and make it work is to attach a safety
pin to where the pull was attached and use it to pull the zipper up and down.
You can take it up a notch
by putting decorative beads on the safety pin for a more decorative look.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Most thrift stores have craft
sections that sell zippers.
- Use 40-50% off coupons at
sewing stores to buy new zippers.
- Find a seamstress to replace a
zipper for a quality item.
- If you don't need the zipper,
such as in a pillow, just sew up the seam. You can undo your sewing when
you need to wash the pillow covering.
