Creative Mending Tips and Ideas

This month, we're talking about making clothes last. In this episode, learn 10 different ways you can mend, adapt, or wear your clothes when they've gotten a little past their prime.

In this episode, we explore 10 different options, from adding visible mending or embroidery to temporary fixes that just let you get a bit more life out of a garment. This episode will probably inspire you to try all sorts of other creative solutions for that less-than-inspiring mending pile you’ve been ignoring.
