Visible Mending

Visible mending continues to be an obsession. Not for the least of reasons because I’m a total klutz.

These jeans started as a visible mend on a tiny little hole I caught going over the fence. Then I just sort of turned them in to art jeans. And then I was going over the fence again yesterday…

To explain, the fence is about 2 feet high and is used to keep the dogs out of the garden. But I got to work and disguised it as much as possible while repairing.

This one isn’t as smooth, but I couldn’t find the sticky back repair fabric I’ve used on other things. But amongst all the thread, I don’t think the repair is all too obvious.

  1. I like what you’ve done. I once had a pair of jeans that were patched with embroidery so many times I finely had to give up when there weren’t enough threads left in the jeans to hold the embroidery anymore. 🙂
