Latest Sewing Project: Heart Patch

Arts & Crafts, DIY

My latest personal sewing project involves repair. Apparently I have a habit of crossing my legs at exactly the same spot and wearing out the fabric. Since this pair of knit pants is for home use, I didn’t shy away from patching it with a heart cut from an old, ratty t-shirt.

Repairing is not as exciting as, say, making something useful and beautiful from scratch. However, I’ve truly come to appreciate being able to extend the life of an otherwise perfectly serviceable article with a minor adjustment or addition.

This isn’t the first pair of pants I’ve mended, and I suspect it won’t be the last. 🙂
