Trying out a Greasy tee

When I read a bout Kate Sekules’ Greasytee idea I knew I had the ultimate candidate to try it out on. I have been trying to convince my son that this t-shirt is past the point of being worn but he insists otherwise. In his defence, he does wear this in the workshop working with oils, paints etc.

Some of the marks are outlined and there are a couple of small holes mended too.

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.
