Re: My recylced jiffy bags

Oh I should say I simply stick a white label or piece of white paper on their fronts to write the address on and I use double sided stickie tape and cellotape to seal them with.

My recycled jiffy bags

I have been given loads and loads of used jiffy bags plus I have a load from items I've bought off ebay. I hate to just use them once then throw them out, the problem is they are often covered in address labels, stamps, have dirty marks from going through the royal mail system and some can have a bi...

Re: Needle threader

It looks like it needs to take quite a large sewing needle ie large hole sewing needle.

Re: Sewing bee

I'm not really watching it this time as it reminds me of my exams years ago ie the pressure of getting a set piece done in a give time frame, using the correct procedure's etc etc I've seen the past ones but then only to see what people make.

Re: Circular needles

I've had 2 of my finer circular bamboo ones snap but they were so cheap I could replace a full set for the price of one. I do have a metal set I bought from Germany that are great as the points are solid but then they become like wire for the middle bit so there are no joins that can come undone and...
