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!
