When necessity makes us think anew - beautiful things happen. Nice work
Clever Idea!!Fantastic work and save!!!
what a great "save".
Creative save! I love your idea to use your husband's old shirt as stabilizer to keep things nice and soft on the back. I have to keep this "darn" tip in mind!
Good save .I have a small hole in a knitted top since last winter & you have given me an idea on how to fix it.Got about 3 months to fix it before winter.My hole wasn't caused by moths,have you tried wooden cedar balls which don't leave a horrible smell in your clothes that lasts forever.
Good morning Dear, I hooped the shirt fabric with 2 layers of vilene, glued the piece in place and put a piece of WS Avalon film on top. But before that, I wore the pullover for a few hours so that it cout warm up and stretch to my bodyshape. The 2 layers of vilene make the stitches a tiny bit longer and the little hearts are much more relaxed. I did them all in one and the same hoop.
Thank you for the info .I don't think I could wear it at the moment 32C & very humid .
Those pesky buggers. You did a beautiful job. Get you some mothballs!/Lillian
great fix girly:):)
Wonderful save, love Chris
You have done a great job of saving your pullover
Good cover up.
inventive darning, clever of you. And now no-one will ever know.....except us
I embroidered the same heart on the backside hem of my newly sewn pink rayon t-shirt. After cover stitching the hem, I waned to cut off the excess and a tiny piece of front fabric slipped in the blades of my very sparp applique
scissors. I just wanted a simple pink t-shirt and ended un with a unique designer piece. Well, well.
What a great idea so thanks for the tip
You have made a great save with the added decorations of hearts Well done. Sandra.
