I am home, waiting for the results from a PCR test. So, to help the time pass, I’m mending some leggings my daughter put in the mending box a few weeks ago.
These old leggings are full of small holes that make them almost, but not quite, unwearable. I decided to go to YouTube for a tutorial. This clip showed me the technique I needed.
As it turns out, fixing holes in knit fabric is fairly easy. Just take tiny stitches on either side of the hole until the hole is miraculously mended. These leggings will last a while longer, and next time I will mend them with brighter thread so that they become a work of art.
I love making things last longer.
One thought on “Visible mending – mending leggings”
Great job. I love mending too, although I’ve got a way to go to get good at it. I find the process very soothing and satisfying. I must dig out my sewing bag, buried somewhere here in the caravan under piles of building samples!
