Photo du jour

getting started


  1. I'd like to know more about the project pictured here! It looks as if you are machine appliqueing onto a sweater or sweater knit fabric. If this is the case, what will be the cleaning method for the finished piece? I prewash everything that I sew but it would seem that this combination might not tolerate washing.

    Do you have pictures of the finished product?

  2. Hi Anne! This was a mending project -- a hole in a nice cashmere sweater, with ultrasuede over the top to fix it. I wrote about it in the blog August 19, 2010. I don't know how my brother washes the sweater, but I'm sure the ultrasuede will be happy to go along.
