My zipper pull broke. Again. Last time I fixed it by adding a key ring, but this time there isn’t a big enough hole for anything more than some wire.
Ergo, my frugal fix that does not involve buying a new coat (yet):
The wire is pretty flimsy so I don’t think it’s a permanent fix, but the hole was too small for either a ribbon or thicker wire, and I knew thread wouldn’t last long. And I really don’t want to mess with taking out the zipper.
