  1. Clothes repair: How to move a zipper to another side While sewing a pair of shorts or pants, a beginner tailor might easily, in the heat of work, make a mistake of attaching a zipper on the ‘men’s’ side instead of ‘women’s’ and vice versa. These shorts with a zipper on the ‘women’s’ came to me as the result of a young man’s hasty shopping. An unusual order resulted in a tutorial, which I’m now sharing with you. How to move a zipper to another side. Materials Shorts A sewing machine A zipper foot A spare zipper (if necessary) Threads and needles, scissors, a seam ripper How to move a zipper to another side. The work order This is how the shorts looked before I started working on them. I want to call your attention to the waistband; we’ll be making changes to it as well. A ready garment is not that different from a semi-finished one when it comes to preparation. You’ll need to get rid of unnecessary stitches and deconstruct the unit. Pick up a seam ripper and carefully deconstruct the whole thing. Don’t touch the cording or edge finishing made with a serger. Let’s proceed to the zipper. On the fly front guard there already is a line that will serve you as a guide for sewing a zipper. Baste the zipper to the wrong side. Install a zipper foot on your machine and stitch the zipper tape. Baste or pin the front fly extension to the other side of the tape and stitch. In order to prevent the pieces from getting nipped in the course of sewing, you may fold them in half and pin. On the right side of the garment, mark where the topstitch will run. Align the edge of the zipper unit with the edge of your garment. Stitch the parts together. Fold the zipper unit to the wrong side and topstitch along the edge from the lower to the upper edge. Edge stitch foot is your little helper here. Set the values according to your own taste. You can easily determine the stitch length by simply measuring it with a ruler on a ready item. Different embroidery machine models have different stitch settings; there is a lot written about them in the manual. It often has tables that help to quickly choose the right stitch and the values. Topstitch the fly guard along the drafted line. After that, join the free edge of the zipper tape and the garment. This is how my shorts looked like after I relocated the zipper. Stitch the lower part of the front seam under the topstitching line to the center point where the seams meet, one or two times. Join the parts with their wrong sides together, and topstitch on the right side (optional). All that’s left is to sew a waistband. In order to do it evenly, join the waistband and the garment, beginning at the center back. Evenly distribute the waistband, paying attention to where the side seams meet. If there are the belt loops, use them as guides. Stitch the waistband to the garment, then fold the waistband lining to the wrong side and topstitch along the lower edge or do the shadow seam. This will help to lower the burden on the first seam, and also to join the inner side of the waistband to the outer one. Sew the buttons back on. Compare the two photos. On the left are the shorts how they came to me, on the right — the shorts after I repaired them. This tutorial uses an unusual way of sewing a zipper. In the clothing repair shop where I saw it first, it was called ‘the quick one’ and was intended for speedy clothes repair. Original text by Irina Lisitsa

  5. Very effective design of the torn fabric from which the cat's head looks. If you have torn jeans, such embroidery will not only beautify them, but also eliminate the tearing of the fabric. It is also very impressive such embroidery looks on bags, jackets. To realize such a non-standard embroidery project, consider the features of machine embroidery on the skin. Many embroiderers think that embroidering on leather or leatherette is an impossible task. In fact, everything is not as difficult as it seems at first glance. First, materials such as leather and skin replacement do not forgive mistakes. That is, if you have already made a needle puncture, it is impossible to remove it. It will not drag on and will not disappear by itself, as on other bases for embroidery. Secondly, before embroidery, it is recommended to duplicate the material with ordinary sewing non-woven fabric. Thirdly, it must be remembered that leather materials, like any other fabric, are of different thickness and softness. They also vary in density, weight and hardness. Therefore, you should responsibly choose the material. For example, the softer and thinner the material, the easier it will be to seal it. Fourth, it is best to use a cut-off average density as a stabilizer. In some cases, the use of a detachable stabilizer is permitted. Fifth, it is recommended to wrap the hoop with soft material before stitching the material. It is also necessary to weaken them so that they leave behind traces. An excellent option would be to use a magnetic hoop, if any. Finally, reduce the embroidery speed to reduce the load on the embroidery machine. It will also help. prevent skipping stitches. On a brown leather background. Machine embroidery design with a cat in fabric will look incredible. This idea is great for creating an original gift for friends, family and acquaintances.
