Zips are kind of my nemesis.
I have this irrational fear of having to either sew them in, or attempt to fix them. I’m sure I’m not the only one!

Thankfully there are lots of resources out there to help all us zip phobics face up to our fears and attempt to fix our broken zips, including this recent post we spotted on Treehugger, with 3 easy zip repairs.

Another one of my favourites is this one using sugru and a humble paper clip to make a new zip pull – this is something I’ve actually done myself and it’s a fix that is still going strong about 3 years on 🙂

Do share some pics of your favourite zip fixes, or indeed any zip related struggles you might be having, over on Facebook!
