Fixing a Metal Zipper That Separates

The metal zipper on my leather purse has started to separate after zipping, which defeats the purpose of zipping the bag. Is there a way I can fix it myself?

Measure it (or take it with you) and go to a fabric store and get a replacement zipper. They are not that hard to replace. Most dry cleaners will also replace zippers.

You can stitch right above the area that separates. The zipper will be shorter, but will still be usable.
