In the wardrobe / Repairing a knit jumper
« on: December 16, 2018, 20:22:52 PM »
Hi all,

Hope this is the right board to put this on. I've been doing some wardrobe care and a favourite jumper of mine like this one on the right from mama and me's page has got a small hole in the arm and the wool has come lose. Does anyone know how to fix this as I've never worked with knitted things before and I don't want to just throw it out. Any advice or tips will be so much appreciated!
Thanks in advance  <3

« on: July 23, 2018, 20:05:22 PM »
Hi everyone,

So next month (come on sweet payday)  :toast: I will be attempting to hand sew my first whole dress :thread: This is the pattern I have https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-LOOK-SEWING-PATTERN-Misses-Dresses-EASY-SIZE-6-16-6567/361995270818 the poll is for which would be a good challenge but not leave me crying in a corner too often. Also if anyone has used this pattern before any honest reviews are welcome. Thank you all!

Hi, I'm new... / Hello everyone

Hi everyone,

I'm Abbie and I have recently moved back to the midlands after 7 years in Lewisham London, just settled back into my own place and itching to sew again.

Thanks for allowing me to join on this forum, I've used it in the past to much avail. I've done cross stitch since primary school and started sewing around 7 years ago, mainly self taught so all the knowledge and experience that is here is incredibly helpful.

I've mainly made household things, skirts, tops, upcycling clothes and baby clothes.

Next month I'm going to start on my biggest project so far, to hand sew my own dress. I've made 2 dresses before but always with a machine  :S any advice welcome for that!

Looking forward to sharing and learning from TSP members as you all seem lovely people!

Abbie  :flower:
