Mrs Bowden’s top tip – mending a pocket

Mrs Bowden’s top tip – mending a pocket
The gutwrenching sound of fabric and stitches ripping as you damage a pocket is so unwelcome! This week’s top tip takes you through mending the pocket – it’s a technique that can be applied to many emergency mending situations.
Apply an egg shaped piece of fusible interfacing to the back of the fabric where the tear has occurred – make sure it is bigger than the rip to help fortify the fabric around the area.
Create a triangle stitch at the corner to hold the top of the pocket in place.
As you can see the pocket has been restored and all is well!

Until then,

in stitches,

Mrs Bowden x
