I used scotch tape when sewing over the hole in the fabric. The jersey stayed put and did not move while I was sewing. Mission accomplished!
Yes, it is totally UNprofessional. Totally. But hey, it makes life easier! That’s why I am showing it to you. You might need it some day. Just in case 🙂
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– a piece of fabric (in the desired form and colour)
To my defense, it was a special case, as I didn’t want to make the fabric too stiff, so pressing a fusible interlacing between the two layers was out of question… So if – for any feasible reason – you don’t want to use any fusible interlacing (that would glue the patch to the spot), this is what you can do too.
1) Cut a patch from jersey to cover the (oh-too-obvious!) hole in your piece of garment and place it over the hole and fix it to the spot using several small pieces of scotch tape. No pinning required!
2) Stitch it using a dense zigzag stitch:
3) Remove the scotch tape. Done!
Easy and quick! And now I can stil wear my favorite, softest long-sleeve T-shirt 🙂
