How to Fix Clothing without Sewing

While I know a lot of you readers sew, I also know a lot of you readers don't.  So, I wanted to show you one of my secret weapons for fixing clothing when I don't want to sew it.

I am a big fan of Aleene's Fabric Fusion Peel and Stick Sheets.  I used them to fix my Toms HERE, and I used them to make no-sew headbands HERE.  Today I'm going to show you how I used it to fix issues I had with a sweater and a skirt.

I bought this skirt the other day and while I really like it, the pocket flaps always fly up.....

....like this.  I flip them down about thirty times a day.  Enter Peel and Stick Sheets.  

All I did was cut a piece of adhesive.  The adhesive is sandwiched between two papers.  I cut out a small rectangle....

 ...and then I peeled off the top paper.

I applied it to the inside of the flap.

I removed the other paper and put the flap back down.


I bought this sweater a while back and while I really liked it, the knit was crazy stretchy and the sweater always bulged open between the buttons even though it wasn't too small.  Now, I always wear my cardigans closed, so I just cut thin strips of the adhesive exactly like I did above and ran them down the sweater where it closes.  No more bulging.  I've washed the sweater at least eight times and the adhesive is working really well.

It's great to be able to fix something so quickly, too.

Thanks for reading.

I swear by 'steam a seam' if I need something sewed; even though I have a sewing machine. I don't know how to use it.

Fabulous advice, girl. Never have seen those strips before. I love Aileen's products... but now even more!
