I have successfully completed my first item from my 12 in 2012 list. I pulled out my pile of “clothes to be repaired” and sorted it out. Some were not worth saving, but some were. And I saved them with stitch witchery.
This was my first experience with stitch witchery, and I’m now obsessed. I like to sew, but there are some things (like an old pair of brown pants) that would be hard for me to hem without leaving a very visible trail behind. Here’s how it works:
Cut a strip of stitch witchery and place it between the two pieces of fabric you want to repair.
Cover with a damp cloth, and turn your iron to “wool” setting.
Hold your iron on the spot for 10 seconds, but don’t move the iron up and down. Then flip the hem over and do the same on the other side. Let it cool and check how you did. Magical!
