Hi,
When I've done purse cakes, I make the zipper using a strip of fondant cut to the size I need. Then use the Wilton cutter/embosser ( had 3 different wheels to use) rolled down the center of the strip. Looks just like a zipper! Make a little zipper pull out of another piece of fondant and attach it to a loop at the end of the zipper.

Hope that helps!

I did what the previous poster did with the wheel tool. Here is my pic
