I finished these jeans and then managed to take a bunch of selfies in all of which I looked unbelievably awkward. Then I picked the one where I look like, well, this. So yeah, I’m totally killing this social media self-promotion thing. If you want any tips, just feel free to message me. 😉😆 . Or if you’d prefer to just see the mending in better detail, swipe for more pictures. Also, the other day my daughter explained that her butterfly net had a hole in it and it needed ‘mending’ so that’s a win, clearly. . Oh before I forget, these patches are actually hand woven fabric from India @jckoliva so kindly shared with me this past weekend. And now I have a new friend stitched into my story. 💕 . #makedoandmend #mending #community #mendingmatters #patchwork #tinkattacksherwardrobe
