Adventures in Mending- Leggings Edition

Our girls wear a lot of leggings. And, the way the three of them play…there are a lot of knee holes in those thin, stretchy pants. Once the holes get to a certain point, I usually cut them off into shorts and we get another season or two of wear out of the deal. Today my daughter talked me into mending them instead. Here’s how we made it happen!

No Wasted Memories

Memorial projects are incredibly special to me. I love hearing stories about the person’s life and keep them in the forefront of my mind as I cut and sew, doing my best to incorporate bits and pieces of who they were into the design. My goal is always to create a piece that can be a tangible reminder of a beautiful person whose memory lives on in the hearts of those who loved him or her. Here is a peek at my process.
