HOW TO SEW LIKE A PRO This time I wanna share with you cool hacks for unexpected situations when you might need some quick emergency fixing. This one used to happen to me all the time. Whenever I put on my cheeky pair of ripped jeans, every single time my left leg slipped into knee hole! It’s not very pleasant and there’s always a fear to damage your favorite jeans. Here’s the solution I came up with recently.
I cut off the rest of old threads. And made neat stitches with white thread all over again. It worked as charm! And I’m sick and tired of my bra straps slipping down. I always face this problem during summertime. Here’s what I do: I make a little braid – like bridge with threads under the top strap and then a bra strap goes through that bridge.
It’s as simple as that! I’m currently working on a project that requires the use of stiffened felt. You can buy it already stiffened at the craft store, but then you are limited to the colors and sizes that they carry. Also, if you know me, you know I am particular about what kind of felt I use. It was surprisingly easy and cheap to stiffen the felt myself. There are lots of different methods out there, but for my purposes, I found using regular old white school glue worked great!
So here you go, here’s how to stiffen felt with school glue. To stiffen felt, you will need: felt white school glue warm water old container wax paper iron and ironing board And here’s one of the most common and handy uses of the stiffened felt. If you ever faced this problem 3:32 and I bet you do! Then you know what I’m talking about! 🙂
So just stick two straps of the stiffened felt to your favorite shorts and walk freely and comfortably!
