Mend Those Jeans With a Sashiko-Inspired Stitch

Remember when I confessed that I hated mending?

It’s true!

In the past, when I glanced at my mending basket, I’d hear those high-pitched horror movie violins and run the other way.

I know it’s weird, for as much I enjoy sewing and refashioning, that I would fear mending so much.

But today, those violins are starting to play a different tune.

Today, I started to LOVE mending.

Today, I’m mending with a Sashiko inspired stitch and I liked it!
