Attach Patches With Staples First

If you have badges, patches, or other insignia to sew onto your child's uniform (ie. Scout), use your household stapler first to staple them in place, Then sew by machine with zipper foot, or by hand, whichever works for you. The stapler works so much easier than trying to pin with straight pins.

The patch will stay straighter if you use a couple of staples and you won't get stabbed by the straight pin breaking or just springing off into your finger! Of course, you will need to remove the staples when you are finished. Use your seam ripper on the back side to unbend the prongs of the staple, then pull out from the front.

There is a tool that you can repair broken zippers. You can buy it online or I have also seen it in fabric stores, namely, Hancocks. It is called a Flip an Zip and it repairs broken zippers if they are split in the middle or anywhere else. I saw them on Amazon also. This is really a money saver if you have children as it seems they are always breaking zippers to their coats.
