Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

How I fixed the hole in my boyfriend's shorts!

Calvin works in the painting industry (but that is about to change). He is really rough on his clothing, they get a lot of wear and tear not to mention lots of chemicals and paint splashed on them. He had these pair of green shorts that he loved but somehow blew out the pocket. How? I have no idea and neither does he!

Not only did he pull the pocket off, he pulled out a section of material. It was almost a perfect square. I pulled the material off the pocket top with my seam ripper. Here is the hole!

I put the little guy back in his place and pondered how I was going to fix it up. I opted for fusible interfacing, I had tons of scraps from other project. I did the inside first cut and iron.

Then added interface to the front side- ironed it down.

I pinned the pocket back on the shorts and top stitched down. Now we were good as new! And I have a happy boyfriend!

Isn't it so satisfying to fix an item of clothing you thought was ruined? :) Good save!
