How to ... Shorten Metal Zippers

Written by Amy Pinkos


Posted on March 08 2020

I have been meaning to do a video on this FOREVER!ย  It is easily one of my most commonly asked questions in the shop and during classes.ย  So I finally went to Best Buy, bit the bullet, and bought a contraption thingy that holds my phone overhead.ย  It is, in my opinion, a wise investment, albeit grossly overpriced.ย  Which brings me to Amazon.ย  Has anyone noticed how Amazon is no longer the cheapest option out there?ย  A few times this week I've made a purchase in-store that was a lot cheaper than the Amazon price.ย  1) Paper Solvy 2) Plastic pattern bags and 3) the thingamajig I bought today (Best Buy $79 vs Amazon $88).ย  So I'm just sayin, "buyer beware".ย  Or as the dead language says, "caveat emptor".ย  As a side note, I took two years of high school Latin, and all I can remember is the time I made the Leaning Tower of Pisa out of boxed lemon cake.ย  TWO YEARS and all I remember is cake.ย  Insert eye roll.ย 

I'm off topic in a hardcore way, my point is this, I spent a lot of money on this ... thing.ย  So you best like this extremely novice video, ha!;)

I'd really like to add in more how-to-videos, so comment with anything you'd like to see!ย  I may not know how to do it, but I have a crew of ladies who are light years smarter than me, who would probably love to spread some crafty knowledge!
