I cleared out my craft corner (again) recently, trying to make space for the paperwork I know will be part of my new course.
This meant I unearthed my sewing machine from its corner and yesterday I set to on my make do and mend box.
In one day I managed to:
shorten/adjust two dresses
fix and line my favourite handbag
adjust a t-shirt for a better fit
repair my horribly torn pyjama trousers
hem smallest daughters school trousers for next year
In addition I rediscovered a much loved linen jacket. It had torn and worn cuffs so I hand pleated 5 metres of cotton ribbon, cut off and reapplied the cuffs and then applied the ribbon to the bottom hem and cuff ends. Here is the gallery of work:
Am very happy.
