If making repairs counts as sewing, then I have done a lot of sewing lately! Replacing broken zippers, sewing on missing buttons, re-hemming hems that have come undone, and blah, blah, blah...
The most rewarding repair was a child's Halloween costume. Last summer, my girlfriend had picked up this blue/purple/green lame fish costume in a thrift store for $4.
It was in great shape with the exception of a few seams that were beginning to ravel - which, if you've sewn lame before you know it is notorious for doing that - and I assured her I could fix it.
And a simple fix it was. I covered the frayed seam by appliquéing a colorful cotton patch over the top of it. I added one on the other side also so it looks as if it was part of the original design.
It's such a cute little costume.
I'm working on a coordinating trick-or-treat bag. After all, if you're going to wear a costume this cute you might as well go all out.
