Sometimes you need to do less creative and inspiring things, but I’ve begun to realise that mending clothes is not just economical and good for the environment, it can actually be fun, once you sit down to it. It’s getting there that’s the problem….
Last weekend I mended my husband’s jeans, and my three year old’s trousers. Both were mended in the same way: I put a patch behind the hole, and sewed rows of parallel running stitches over it. I did weave over the warp threads that still remained too.
Before and after.
A little bit of work, and my men will look decent a while yet. It’s certainly gratifying that you see an instant result of your labour.
