Strawberry knee patches

My daughter has worn holes in the knees of her favourite pyjamas and I’m excited to mend something other than jeans. I haven’t done much embroidery before so I thought I’d stick with simple stitches.

It’s great when some scraps of old t-shirt and few threads can make someone smile!

Visual mending

Slip of the tongue? It is called Visible Mending in contrast to Invisible Mending but for some reason I found my self using the term Visual Mending right from when I first heard it, so that’s what it is for me.

Visible mending has really taken off in recent years and there are thousands of inspiring photos on the internet, and plenty of techniques to try and books to read. I hope it turns out not to be just a trend but more of a mindset.
