Visible Mending

Is anybody into visible mending? I always think it looks so lovely, but despite having some very old clothes I never seem to have anything that needs fixing. (Lucky me, I hear you say).

Finally I found something; one of my bed socks developed a hole in heel. Yes, I know, not exactly something that gets much wear and tear.

I considered possible circular motifs. Flowers seemed the obvious answer. But on a brown and white sock? Then it hit me… a circular animal…

It was pretty fiddly to put on and could be neater, but finally I’ve done some visible mending. Have you ever done any? I’d love to see it if you have.

Until next time,

  1. So cute and perfect! I have some mending to do and am bracing myself – not so keen to start – and definitely not so much fun as embroidering a sheep. My husband’s favourite pjs have a tear and he wants me to patch it!

    1. Thank you. It definitely encouraged me to mend it rather than leaving it for weeks – which is what I’d normally do. Maybe you could embroider a nice big flower over the tear in your hubby’s PJs πŸ˜‚ I won’t ask how they got ripped πŸ˜‰

  2. Aww this is so cute. I love the idea of visible mending but have tended towards not very visible mending recently. But I have mended a lot of socks recently with visible but not stylised mending, its amazing how much wear I put my socks through!

  3. Some of my socks have been darned in different colour/yarn to the original. But yes, I think genernalyl it all goes at once (I did repurpose a cardigan into a cushion because it was just completely wearing through everywhere)

    1. I think your absolutely right – it does go all at once. I have a sweater in my wardrobe that’s practically in pieces and unwearable, but I’m saving to repurpose into something, because I loved it so much. Well done on the cushion.
