How to shorten a zip. :)

I have learnt how to shorten a zip through a pattern cutting lesson. It is very simple and useful to know, so I have broken it down to three easy steps for you.

Step one: Decide on the desired length of your zip and mark it on lightly.

Step two: With a needle and thread, sew a few tight loops around the zipper -over the teeth- where you have lightly marked, to act as a stopper.

Step three: When you are satisfied with your new stopper, you can cut the part of the zip that you no longer need off.
