Hemming Your Garment!

One of the most tell tale signs of a home made garment is the hem.  I struggled with this for years, but now I pretty much have it down pat.  As the video tells you, I also have had people pick up my garment and look at the hem.  I sometimes think they don't believe I made it and I guess a poor hem proves that I did!  That is why I concentrate on making my hems as perfect as I can.  Here are some tips!!  Just click on the link, this is a very good video to keep in your sewing files.

Cobb Shoes - So Amazing!!

I don't know if you are like me, but when I see some fantastic way of sewing, I just have to share it.  This cobbler, Dr. Marten, shows how Cobb shoes are made.  Only 50 people in the factory.  I think I have a pair of Cobb shoes.  I am going to have to check that out.

Watch this video, it is truly amazing!!!  I watched with my granddaughter and we were both mesmerized.  I  told her I would love to go there and play with the machines and make her a pair of shoes!!!  She said I will take them!  They are just so fast!!
