I enjoy making things myself, so I have set up this page to link to tutorials - both my own and others, to help you to do it yourself too. I would like to make this comprehensive, so please feel free to forward me links to other pages that you think would be suitable for inclusion here.
I found it hard on my shoulders and hands to set snaps so set up my press to use leg strength to work it instead! Here is a tutorial I wrote describing the process.
So many people say it can't be done, but in this tutorial I will show you how I have patched the knees of my daughter's pants and explain so you can do it yourself.
