If any of you reading this have a passion for sewing and crafts and would like to share pictures of your talents, or any other tips then please do get in touch. In the meantime here are a few suggestions for potential sewing ease:

  • Catch it early, holes and tears will only get bigger.
  • Keep the buttons that come free with clothes in a tin. You never know when you might need them and the kids love playing with them too.
  • Cheat, iron on hemming tape has been invented for a reason!
  • Use a needle threader and a sharp needle.

You tube; there are thousands of videos from sewing on a button to making a whole dress.
