Mending isn’t just a great way to save money — it’s more eco-friendly than replacing a perfectly wearable garment that has a small flaw.
We talked not too long ago about some simple mending techniques. There was great feedback in the comments, so I thought it would be fun to revisit the topic with some additional information.
Several people mentioned that they didn’t own a sewing machine, so they couldn’t mend their clothing, and I’m so glad you brought that up! While a machine definitely makes things go more quickly, you can absolutely sew without a machine.
You also mentioned wanting a tutorial on how to repair a busted zipper, and I’ve got you covered there, too.
