I skipped knitting last weekend because I have a serious backlog of mending to catch up on.
First some leggings Windsor tore. There was no chance of making this seam invisible. So instead I used the catch stitch and some superwash yarn for stretch and durability.
And I added an embroidered daisy, because she’s 5, and I can get away with it.
Next up (not exactly mending) I broke out the crochet hook and added hair to her Elsa hat. Which is now her favorite hat ever. Yay for cool-mom points!
And finally, a little something for me. I hemmed these sparkly work pants so I can finally wear them!
Because they’re made of stretchy fabric I used the same stitch, just in a horizontal line, and hidden in the cuff. (a modification I don’t see online, but am sure I just unvented it.)
Basically invisible! And that’s why I prefer hand-sewing hems over breaking out the sewing machine for that job.
