Mend and Save!  #3

Mend and Save! #3

Third in my “Mend and Save!” series is a sweater which was perfect except for one small hole.

I found this piece for just $1.99.

Here’s the small hole …. probably the only reason it was put in the “give-away” pile and ended up in a thrift store.

As you can see, the repair is really right along a seam line, so it was no trick to fix this!  I turned the sweater inside out, and pinned along the seam.  I added the additional pins so you can see where I intended to sew.  I just made a slightly curvy seam right around the small hole.  NO ONE will notice the slightly curvy seam under my armpit!

When sewing this time, I used my regular sewing machine.  I began by sewing a straight seam, then finishing the edge with a tight zig-zag stitch.  Here you can see the setting on my machine for the tight zig-zag stitching.

I sewed.

And that was it!!!  Sweater all done and ready to wear!!!

Don’t throw out your garments which just need a bit of mending!  Give them that quick fix and put them back in your wardrobe to extend their lives!!!

Happy Making!

Molly 🙂
