shanniloves First try at darning. Guess it doesn't look too bad. Thanks @gmariesews for the advice! 1w

shanniloves Ok I had someone give this to me to fix. It's on the elbow. I suggested putting elbow patches on. But she's a young gal (high school) and thinks elbow patches are totally uncool. I really don't know any other way to try and fix but to hand sew it shut and that's if it'll even take. You can see how wide the knit is. Any other suggestions? #sewing #sewcialists 2w
  •   gmariesews Darn it. Google darning, use a similar small yarn and catch all those running loops. You can use a crochet hook to knit some of them back up where the yarn is loose. Essentially you make new knit fabric to fill the hole. Does that make sense? 2w
  •   momgilmore4 Aw I think elbow patches would be cute. Makayla just got a sweater that she bought brand new at Delia's and it is really cute . That is what is in. 2w
  •   sweetlittlechickadee Elbow patches are uncool?! Oh maaan, I love elbow patches! I second the darning with a crochet hook like @gmariesews said. That should help! 2w
  •   momgilmore4 No they are not uncool and I think they are really cute.! 2w
  •   shanniloves Thanks @gmariesews ! Just watched a video on how to do it. Totally doable!! 2w
  •   almondrock_sews Heart shaped elbow patches? Up the cool factor 2w
  •   taniasews2 Yep- go old school and darn it! 2w

shanniloves Help! I'm trying to photograph my latest make. It's a mini houndstooth print. See how the print is coming out all crazy and psychedelic like? I cannot figure out how to get my camera to focus correctly. I'm using a canon rebel t3i. Any advice? #photography #sewing 3w
  •   heathergrows I wish I could help but I have no idea. Did you try the close-up setting? The one with the tulip? I'm so technical. 3w
  •   grainlinestudio It's called moiré and it really is a pain in the ass. There are ways to diminish it a bit, I think mostly on the computer (I feel like photoshop has a tool for this) but my photo degree has long left me. If you google moiré though there'll probably be something good? 3w
  •   shanniloves @heathergrows lol me too! Yes the only way I can get it to come out right is if I get up close to the camera which is not good for wanting full length shots 3w
  •   grainlinestudio Also you can hold a card in front of you for the camera to focus on then once the focus is locked toss it. Or put a hand in front of you. 3w
  •   shanniloves @grainlinestudio thank you!! I will try that!! 3w
  •   naomimolly This picture almost made me a little dizzy! 3w
  •   almondrock_sews What @grainlinestudio said. Hold something in your hands while you have your pic taken. Might not make the perfect photo but will help focus. Changing angle can sometimes help 3w

shanniloves Ugly Christmas sweater for work. I added the white fluff and Charlie Brown tree. Think I'll add more fluff around bottom hem and be done with it. Ugly enough? 1mon
