Mending is Beautiful

Craft & Design Yarncraft

Wow! I absolutely love the mending job on these jeans by Sherri Lynn Wood from the daintytime blog. They’re such a great reminder that mending is beautiful, and that it doesn’t have to be just a boring old repair. I’d rather have these pants than a brand new pair any day!

    Those are lovely! My 8 year old daughter recently shredded parts of a linen/rayon dress I’d just sewn up – she apologized then helped me in patching them by selecting the fabrics to mend them. I double-patched on both sides of the dress and free-motion stitched them down. Very fast and sloppy but it did the job and she loves it.

    I used to patch my boyfriend’s jeans just like this in the early 70s. Soon his friends were bringing me their jeans to patch, too! I also hand embroidered the hems of my own jeans. We never threw out a pair of jeans that fit. As Donovan sang about holes in jeans, “That only makes them nicer still.”
