I love my blue Marimekko unikko (poppy) bag to bits – literally, I’m sorry to say. Something had to be done.
Ta-dah! Reinforcing the torn edge with buttonhole stitch should give it a few more years.
I used regular cotton embroidery floss, since that was the best color match I had. I know it’s not the most durable of threads; I’ll have to see how well it does under the rigors of everyday life.
