100 Frugal Tips in 100 Days: Tip # 54

Tip # 54 Learn to sew!

OK, I admit, I don't own a sewing machine and I don't really know how to sew, but imagine if I did. I could do my own alterations, sew on loose buttons, and fix small snags or tears in clothes! Think about the money (both the cost of the clothes and the cost of repairs) you could save! I actually have managed to reattach buttons and have fumbled through fixing some small holes in shirts and pants thanks to a little sewing kit my mom gave me several years ago. This should definitely go on my To Do list.

  1. I have the sewing machine so if you want to come over and learn about straight lines I can do that. If you want more detailed lessons you may need to contact Emily.
