First time sewing with a double needle


   Today my mum asked me to mend a hem on a t-shirt that had let go. She just can't get the hang of sewing stretchy fabric. So I decided it was a perfect opportunity to finally give sewing with a double needle a try.  I did a search and found this site:

  It was very helpful and I realized it really isn't as complicated as I was making it out to be. So anyway her are my results.

The offending seam

My pay, I'm always willing to work for cupcakes

Got the shirt lined up with my fancy hem guide


Got it all unpicked


and I'm all done so here's the front


and the back, now that wasn't so hard
