|Completed sewed all the holes|
|I still see a hole in this picture! Well, out with the needle..|
|Before the repair lots of work to do.|
|Now this was a mess before the repair but lots better now.|
|This was the above area.. Not to bad for a non sewing girl..|
I always say, " Hey we have a bonus!" (not on our list.)
I picked up several things, this crotchet bedspread was one of them. I couldn't find a price on it. The lady running the sale said how about two dollars. Um mm... Yeah! I didn't think there was much wrong with it, other than some staining. I decided to bring it home and was so excited.
I tried several things to get the stain out. I couldn't wash it by hand as the spread was heavy before being wet. So I used my wash machine, last resort placed some bleach in the machine and let it soak a bit. Yes, the thread was thin in some places and you guessed it. After getting it out of the wash, and having to have the machine spin it. The material in certain area's was worse than ever.. But, the stain was gone! So when dry I began the tedious task of repairing the bedspread. From the bottom to the side, top to bottom. Now, did I mention, I am Not really that good at sewing? I do know how to crotchet but, not nothing like this, it has been years. Okay.. well back to the story.. I worked at it for two weeks each day checking, fixing, checking top to bottom, side to side.
The results, I do not think, it would pass someone inspection that does crotchet or sews well.
I am as happy with the result as I can be. I was going to place it in my booth but I just can not part with it. I hope you enjoy! Cindy
