Replacing a zipper pull tab

[Chapter: DIY + tutorials]

Last week after noticing hub hadn’t been wearing that one pair of black trousers, I discovered the pull tab on the zipper had gone missing. So that’s why. Now that’s an easy problem when there are jump rings to help you out.

I started with single jump rings but thought they might slip off easily, so I switched to the doubles which I sometimes use on my sunshine bracelets. Given that the rings are small, it took some wrestling to loop in the first ring, not without prying with a plier to make it wide enough. It was at this time I began thinking of other things that could work with less struggle, like safety pin, ribbon, keyring or paperclip.

I tell myself no one is going to notice the rings nor take note of their colour. Hub has started wearing them again.
