Monte got a tear in his jeans.
It’s a fairly big tear, about 7cm. I ironed some double sided interfacing onto the wrong side of a pretty floral patch of fabric. Then I peeled off the backing paper and ironed the patch onto the inside of the jeans (this is where MG heaved a sigh of relief!).
That is why appliqué is so easy. If I was decorating an item with appliqué, that is how i’d do it, more or less. I’d then stitch around the edges in a decorative way.
Anyway, I dusted off my sewing machine, threaded it with too-dark navy cotton, and set it to a wide, closely-spaced zig-zag stitch. I ran zig-zag stitches over the tear and the hole.
It’s not bad. I’d say it’s not perfect. However, it’s a damn sight less expensive than buying a new pair of jeans.
And he has a piece of one of my favourite fabrics close to his flesh to remind him of me.
Have a good weekend. Perhaps try to save something from the waste pile by doing some mending!
