all patched up

This is a typical patching on my son's pants.  I don't understand how he rips out all his pockets.  We ended up mending 9 pairs of pants: one zipper and knees, one snap, pockets, and knees, one knees only, the rest were pockets and knees.  I am done with mending for a while (I hope.) 

I do have 2 pairs of jeans that need some work done for my girls, but those are a bit different. I can get creative and have fun. They are more like altered couture.

I did try to get my son to agree to something more fun, but he just stared at me for a while and said "no, uh, no way. I'm not a girl. Just jean fabric patches in squares and rectangles; maybe some camo."  So this was as creative as we got with his mending.



  1. How cool! I'm happy to hear that they are learning to take care of themselves.

  2. I guess I need to patch some of my jeans, too.
