Sorry, I couldn’t resist that play on words 🙂
I have designated January as the month for upcycling and repairing as I have a large pile of clothing requiring one or the other and I thought it was about time I got underway!
My newest jeans (bought in July) have started to wear at the top of the inside leg – trousers always wear here which is annoying, but at least it’s fixable.
I used Wenko Stoff-Fix to iron a piece of old blue bandana on the inside of the leg where the holes were beginning. I then tried my best, with ordinary thread to darn the right side of the jeans leg. You can see by the photo that I am not particularly skilled. I just wanted to make it stronger.
After that I thought why not add a bit of pazzazz to the area, embroidering lighter blue flowers – ok I’m likely to be the only one who knows it’s there, but as Elbert Hubbard said, “Art is not a thing, it is a way.”
