Repair a Sweater

Repair a SweaterIt's no secret that I love to thrift shop.  As a result, most of the garments in my closet are second hand, which is awesome, but it never fails that I after I wear a sweater for the first time, I suddenly notice that there are holes ruining my perfectly good find.  It's like some kind of thrift store magic where you never notice the holes while you're actually at the store.  Now the garment is yours though, so what's a person to do?  Actually, fixing a small hole in a sweater isn't that hard and, once your done, the blemish will be hardly noticeable.  Don't toss those sweaters when you can save them and make them almost as good as new.  Watch this lesson and see how it's done.

    Used this technique to repair 3 holes in my favorite tweed sweater and they look fabulous. Because sweater is tweed tried 3 different color threads. Each repair came out better than the previous. The third repair is unnoticeable from the right side! I am so pleased, my sweater’s may now be worn outside the house again! Thank you for this time-honored yet generation-lost technique.

    Thank you so much. I have a sweater that I loved, but it had a hole in it. Now I can keep it for longer.
