I'm totally not a talented seamstress...not by any stretch of the imagination...but I long ago dubbed myself the "Queen of the Straight Stitch". If it requires little or no planning and there are no turn-abouts and such, I'm your girl.
Just in the last few weeks...
I repaired three pairs of boy/man underwear...not a blow out on the back side, nope, it was elastic that had separated from the cotton part.
I patched one of my dad's shirts where the elbow had ripped through adjacent to one of my previous patch repairs.
I patched two of Dave's jeans...seriously, you should check out his pants. The man is not afraid of looking like a patchwork quilt!
I hemmed three of our king size pillow cases so they'd be standard size.
And just now I repaired a hole in one of my jeans. Yes, it was a blow out on the back side (no, I do not put undue pressure on them). I patched this one from the inside so I can still wear them to work.
Feelin' mighty handy-dandy and uber thrifty!
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
