Mending is eco-friendly
Mending is probably the least fun type of sewing because you're not sure the end result will match your vision but it's gratifying when it works. Lately, lots of mending tasks have occurred in the Skitzo Leezra Studio. Ripped jeans, bra strap adjustment and slimmer fits in too large knit shirts. I gain a sense of accomplishment mixed with learning and the satisfaction of saving a few dollars.
A Sewing with Nancy television segment stated that the energy equivalent of mending one pair of jeans equals walking 300 miles. Whatev.
I've got a pile of stuff to alter due to recent weight loss. Yay!
