Do you have any suggestions for sewing/cutting/piecing them into something else? I won't be taking them apart, I'll be actually cutting into them..
This is the bit where I'd 'like' to tell you how easy it all is, and how I've been doing it years and launch into all my expertise - Instead I thought I'd just be honest
I'm fairly new to recon stuff and I've never been taught how to sew, I just thought I'd 'give it a go' - I have NO idea how to follow patterns or anything??
I did cut into a thick knitted sweater ages ago and it started to unravel and I just panicked LOL. I think that particular one ended up in the bin!
These were tight knitted shop bought acyrilics (is that how you spell it?) and when I cut them they didn't unravel. I sewed them with a zig-zag stitch as I read somewhere it stops denim fraying and I thought that might help??? (just guessing here?) I use zig-zag on most things anyway (just incase?)
That was kind of it - I cut and pin things until I'm just happy with the way it generally looks, sew it together and keep my fingers crossed on the rest. I'm making a LOT of mistakes but I've made some OK things too (I think)
I guess there's LOTS of people here that can speak more from experience AND expertise and who actually KNOW what they are talking about as apposed to just guessing like me.
Be sure to show us what you make. I've just seen your butterfly backpack by the way - it's BEAUTIFUL!!!! I would LOVE one of those! What a GREAT prezzie!
