I’ve decided to add a fun new feature to the blog called Tips & Tricks Tuesday. It may evolve into a weekly tip or trick or it may just end up being an occasional thing. I’ll see how it goes. And it could be about anything that I think might prove useful to someone… from sewing tips to cleaning tricks to quick around the house how-tos.
For today’s tip:
This happens when the cording used to hold the puff together isn’t tied tight enough so after a few uses it completely unravels. Now you could just refold the netting accordion style and retie it but eventually it will fall apart again.
I have a simple, long term fix. Take a 24 to 36 inch length of 1/8″ satin ribbon (the kind you buy at the fabric store) and thread it into a long needle with a large eye. Weave the needle in and out through the mesh of the netting.
Once the entire length of the netting has been gathered on to the ribbon, pull the ends of the ribbons to form a new puff.
Pull the ribbons as tight as possible and tie a knot. Trim the ribbons to approximately 8 inches and knot the ends together.
