I have posted here before about Mending , and have decided to make it an ongoing series.I I have been asked many times by friends to do simple mending for them. They've lost a button to a blouse or slacks. Or maybe the seam has opened up on a skirt. Either way, they are pretty simple fixes. Unfortunately, many did not learn how to repair or mend their clothing.
I have even met people at the fabric store who've decided to try their hand at sewing something, but they really have no idea where to start.
I was raised by grandparents who sewed and I am grateful I payed attention when they instructed me in basic mending and sewing techniques.
Today, we are replacing the missing button on Mr. F's shirt. So follow along, and learn how you can do the same for your family' s clothing. It will give you a sense of accomplishment and best of all SAVE YOU $$$$...
