fix-it friday #3
I gathered some helpful links:
-how to sew by hand video: clear and useful
-10 clothing fixes that everyone should know
-how to mend it.com potentially interesting for all kinds of repairs. Check out the clothing section for basic instructions.
And here are some of my favorite mended items in the world: Boro- patched and repaired textiles of old Japan found at SRI Threads in Brooklyn.
I'd love to hear about your fixes: big or little... What have you given a new life to recently?
Have a great weekend and do check out the comments in yesterday's Earth Day give-away. You all provided fantastic ideas for greening up your life!
