Fix a zipper

Thanks to mental exhaustion I could not bring myself to do much during the afternoon–except try to fix the zipper on my dad’s coat. The top that normally holds the zipper handle on broke off, so after a little figuring I determined that my copper jewelry wire goes through the hole on the zip part.

Twisting the copper around and then hammering it flat kind of locks the copper in the loop (at least in my imagination).

Gluing a piece of leather or fabric around the zipper makes it look more normal.
