My husband is an tradesman and constantly comes homes with all sorts of damage to his clothes. I have been trying to make it a habit to inspect his clothing as I fold laundry. As soon as I see a problem I set it aside. About every other month I go through the pile of clothes to be mended. I think a good gauge is the height of my sewing machine. Once the stack is level with the machine I get to work.
From my experience I have found that sometimes and iron on patch works better then just sewing an area shut. I like to go over the patch with the sewing machine if I can for extra stability. I enjoy using a machine to speed up this process but every now and then I feel that I can work more detailed by hand. Do you repair your own clothes? What methods do you like best? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
