Enviromesh
« on: November 05, 2018, 20:06 »
Hi - just a quick question - I've got some very large sheets of enviromesh - its a few yrs old been somewhat neglected.  Anyone had any joy washing & stitching up holes??

Thanks
Missey

Not sure about stitching, but to clean mine I peg it to a few canes placed in the ground and hose it down.

Yes wash it at 60 degrees with soap powder comes up great & I patched mine with some taken off the end & zig zagged around the edges. Next time I buy some or wash what Iíve got Iím going to put Ďbuttoní holes down the edges to peg through like debris netting has along its length 😉

Thanks both - will try sneaking it into the launderette then a bit of patching - I bought a buttonhole maker and the studs when I bought the mesh but I wasnít all that impressed with the results.

Never in a million years would my clumsy man hands be able to do that ;)

Which part the washing or the mending & buttonholes? Lol my sewing machine does buttonholes, talk sweetly to someone who has a machine with the same programme, but they wonít want dirty enviromesh in the house or through the machine 😉

I honestly don't know anyone with a sewing machine!

Have a look in a charity shop & get yourself 1 😊 you would need to check it does buttonholes though

I found I could sew patches on by hand, using backstitch
