Shortening a hem. 

I tried with no avail to attach more photos to my last post! 

So I figured I’d add a new post! 

I was given another pair or men’s work trousers to alter this time a hem to be shortened. These had a durable insert at the back. 

   
 I used my seam ripper to detach the durable insert then cut the hem to the required length, I then pinned and reattached. 

   
 I pleased with the outcome, as these will also have a long life span, I could have just shortened without reattaching the durable insert…. But what sort of seamstress would I be then!!

Make do and mend

So I am still working away on my alterations and mends. 

   
 So we all have that gave pair of jeans right?!? Men and workwear are no different!

   
 These required a patch inserted and I used a sturdy zigzag stitch and some double sided glue to secure. 

   
    
 I ended up using a zig zag stitch to finish this project as my sewing machine couldn’t take the layers! 

I reckon these have a few more wears in them now!

Well hello there!! 

Hi there everyone!

Yes it has been a while! I took a break there from blogging… I have a few projects I thought I would share as I have been remembering to take photos! 

I’m doing some christmas sewing atm, I feel like the craft is the only safe place to speak the “C word” because us crafty people are all about preping for our stalls and fairs! 

  I’m lucky enough to have a sewing room at home… That being said I do have my wee sewing space in the living room too! 

   
 I’m currently making hanging hearts stuffed with christmas spice! 
I love my living room being so festive. My kids are at such a great age they love this time of year. 

  A wee sneak peek! 

   
    
    
 My Christmas stockings are in full flight too. 
So is anyone else Christmas crafting?!?
