Pick a Project

I don't have a particular craft project going right now. Instead, I've been doing a bit of mending and altering. Things like tightening straps on a bathing suit, adding elastic into the waist of my son's bathing suit and cutting an old pair of capris to make a plastic bag holder. Along the way I also did a very necessary fix that saves me quite a bit of cash, tightening the band on my bras.

Ladies, I can't be the only one who has this problem and heaven knows its not because I buy cheap bras. After just a month or two that bra that fit so well starts riding up your back. It makes me nuts. To extend the life of your undergarments try this nifty little trick. Right behind the fabric where the hooks sit, just fold a bit of fabric under and stitch. Do the same thing on the side with the eye portion of the hook & eye. Voila, your band is tighter and your assets are held firmly in place!

Hahahaha...thanks for the tip! It happens to me too, but I am so lazy I just deal with it. Maybe now I won't have to!
