How to Shortern a Regular Zipper

What if you wish to shorten a zipper? If  you have a regular zipper with plastic teeth, that is pretty easy. You can create a new bottom stopper by sewing a few straight stitches over the teeth and cut the extra length. First, close your zipper and mark the point where the new bottom stopper should be placed on the zipper. At the spot where you have drawn a mark, start insert your threaded needle from the underneath and come up beside the teeth, create a bar tack over the zipper teeth by inserting and exiting the needle on either side of the teeth about 6 - 8 times and tie a knot at the back of the zipper. Cut across the zipper about half an inch below the bar tack using scissors.
