I did this exact same thing and I just re-inserted the zipper as if I was zipping a coat, it took several tries, but I finally succeeded. This is what I did:

I inserted zipper pull into one side of teeth and slid up and down to make sure it moves, I then placed a small safety pin on that side so it would not come out again, then slide the zipper pull that is attached to teeth all the way down until the safety pin stops it, now feed the other set of teeth into it, it may take several tries. Now once you have successfully zipped the zipper again, whip stitched around the bottom so the zipper would not come out again.  The wallet sucked, but the zipper was fixed.
