In my ever expanding desire to put my powers to good use, I’ve been studying up and perfecting my stitching. A stitch in time saves nine, and how! You Tube as you may imagine has some good videos; what they lack in flair, they make up for in their instruction. I have been dabbling in my own happy hands at home videos–more flair hopeful instruction–although I have been told that a 14 minute video on sewing on a curtain ring may stretch even the most attentive and eager student’s attention span.
Here is what I have found. If you would like to learn how to sew an invisible zipper, Otis School of Design will answer all the questions that have been keeping you up at night.
Below is a nice little video for you Happy Hands at Home folks. There is a little surprise at the end so make sure you watch to the end. I let out a little, gasp of satisfaction & delight with the results. Suddenly, so many things to do.
