My honest answer would be, I probably wouldn't even use an iron-on denim patch and, if I decided I needed one, the chances are it would need to be bigger than 2" x 1"! And it would, no doubt, need to be a different colour of denim to the one I have. And, yes, I would probably just go and buy a new one. So, do I keep said 2" x 1" patch or not? What a dilemma! :oD
In the midst of all this clearing out, my sister asked me to make my mum some new oven gloves but not the type that I usually made. They had to be the gauntlet type. Well I did make them but, oh, I did not enjoy the process. Turning that thumb was a nightmare! Anyway, they're done - even though I only remembered to take a photo of one of them!
Another bit of clearing out that I've done is this.
Debbie had cut up some old towels of hers with the intention of me teaching her to use my overlocker so she could make them into cloths. Well, the basket of unoverlocked cloths has been sitting in the sewing room for months so I just went ahead and overlocked them yesterday. Next time she visits, I'll be handing her 36 cloths!
You can imagine the mess after overlocking all that towelling so I took my overlocker apart and cleaned it. I even went as far as to get the special mini cleaning hose for my vacuum cleaner and sooked up tons of fluff. It felt really satisfying to see all that fluff disappear up that hose. The overlocker is now sparkling and raring to go again ... but, please, no more towelling cloths for a while! :o)
And now, because it would feel wrong not to show Tilly, here's a short video of her antics with a slipper!
