The Visible Mending Archives

I like to buy clothes to last a long time and sometimes I spend a lot of money on them. And if I’ve worn something for a few years they get holes in them, or gravy stains, or just start to look a bit tired. I don’t want to throw them away, but instead I do some visible mending. Take for instance, this t-shirt. It had holes in them. As I was going to a PJ Harvey gig, I used a line from one of her songs to embellish the back. The holes were prettified by a simple whip stitch.

 

This v-neck jersey has a bugle bead T on it. Five minutes after my partner borrowed it, it was covered in gravy stains. They didn’t come out in the wash, so I used some more bugle beads to cover them up.
