In other colorful news, a mini-tutorial I wrote for CRAFT’s Mending Month is up! It shows a very simple way to mend a torn [green, what a coincidence] sheet — actually a pillow cover, but this hand-sewing technique will work for any woven fabric piece. Diane did a fantastic (as always) tutorial for mending ripped upholstery that I thought I’d spotlight too. I love the Mending Month posts — so practical and simple. It is very refreshing to me to fix what I have instead of constantly buying new.
Speaking of Jenny, the review I wrote of her wonderful new book, Sew Darn Cute, is up at CraftStylish. You can win a copy this week — just comment on this post by next Tuesday and you’re in the mix!
