Make do and mend

Hello there peeps!

How is everyone?

I’ve been sewing away mostly mends at the minute… Although I have plenty other things on the go, I have so many posts to write but my course is coming to an end and there are not enough hours in the day to blog too!

So my mends… These are a few for my boys old nursery school.

A dress in need of a little TLC!

I finished it of with new stitch I found on my machine Santa sent me! I love the finish, it’s very neat. I knew that I couldn’t use my overlocker, as there was so little to work with. But the end result is a good one!!

And a couple of teddies in need if a little hand stitching too!

Both these required hand stitching… Ladder stitch is my go to for a easy clean finish.

I love that I can give a little back. My boys nursery school was the greatest start to schooling!

I have a few more posts in the pipe line, but for now I’m off to start a few more alterations!
