mend...and make do

 This is what happens when we wear the same 2 pairs of jeans for 6 whole weeks walking around Europe... 
bugger...the holes are worth it cause we had a great trip...but the budget is pretty tight since coming back so I gotta make do and mend, and if they last til the end of the winter I will be stoked!
So mum had some iron on hole fixer has a name, you know what I mean! I just put it on... then read the instructions...WHOOPS! I pretty much did everything wrong, it said to wash the garment before, didn't do that, round the corners didn't do that...ha oh well. It's not so pretty but it's on the inside and as I said if they last for the winter I'll be happy and can start over next winter!
Is there anything you've had to mend and make do with lately?


  1. i am forever having to sew buttons back onto garments - they fall off so easily! or maybe I'm just impatient .. Nice patching job! x

  2. I have quite a pile sitting there and waiting to be mended with everything from my favourite jeans to cloth nappies that I am no longer using, but want to get them mended before I put them away. Not sure if I will ever get around to it...
