Sew Away the Skateheads and Surfies on Children’s Clothes

Sewing:


I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like all the “streetwear” stuff that’s often all over children’s clothes. It can be very hard to find clothing for older children without it, especially if you’re shopping on a budget (as I always am!)

After doing some clothes shopping at BigW the other day, it occurred to me that I should choose items that had designs on them that I could easily cover up, or “sew away”!

This jumper was one such item. It’s a lovely colour, and a simple circle sewn onto the front was sufficient to rid the jumper of its “streetwear” look.


I simply measured and cut the material for the circular patch using a bowl.


Then I ironed in the edges of the circle and pinned it onto the jumper.



Then I sewed it! And that was it! Now the jumper has a totally different look and I would be quite happy to see my children in it!

Happy sewing!
