I’ve been looking at refashion projects like this one and wondering if it’s possible to do the re-sewing process by hand? I have a couple of grossly oversized old sweaters that could benefit from this kind of treatment and an old sewing machine at home, but I’m sure the machine can’t serge and I’m not so sure it’s still sturdy enough to handle anything more complicated than a standard lockstitch—not to mention that I’m better at hand-sewing anyway, though I’ve only ever done woven fabrics so far (not knits).
Agree!! I wish I could print to a plotter here at work ..sure would save time!
That’s interesting to know about salt. Thanks!
