Well, here's the perfect DIY for you. Follow the instructions and make a fancy zipper extension in 5 minutes!
What you need
- Leather strips
- Wooden beads
You can use small leftover leather strips to make zipper extensions. The length should be of at least 8 cm (or as long as you want the extension to be) and the width 0.25 cm. You can cut and manage the strip as you want but keep the measurements in mind.
Take the strip and insert the leather strip inside the zipper hole.
Hold both ends of the leather strip together and start inserting the beads.
Insert as many beads as you want, but I think 3-5 beads look better.
Tie a knot at the end of the strip. Keep 1 cm of the strip and trim extra.
You can make zippers similarly using scrap leather pieces.
