Mending items keeps them in the loop for as long as possible and out of landfill. Have you tried visible mending? Photo and mending by @ella_with_thread on Instagram
Mending and darning our clothing to extend their life.
Darning used to be the practise of mending a hole in a garment by carefully stitching colour matching interwoven yarns across each other so that the darning blended into the fabric and becomes almost invisible. I have recently come across the concept of 'visible mending'. A creative and interesting way of mending clothing. The resulting artwork can make you fall in love with an item of clothing again, wearing your beautiful darn as a badge of honour and extending the life of your garment.
