...Bathrobe repair...


...Scout had snagged a hole in his bathrobe...

...and it needed to be patched...so I cut a little patch out of the doubled part of the front...wait...I'll fix that later...

...just turned under the edges and zig-zagged that in place over the hole...

...the completed patch on the back...

...then I took a scrap of linen...and wrote 'Scout' on it...

...turned under the edges and zig-zagged that in place over the harvest site...

...and voilĂ !...a neatly patched bathrobe...with a new name tag...now it won't get lost at Bible Camp this summer...

...what have you been repairing lately?...

Great job!
I have been mending pants! Males are so hard on their clothes, or at least mine are anyway.

Everything! This week has been a hand-sewing of stuffed animals week, making the girls very happy indeed.

Not mending, but I bought a dress at a thrift shop and I am changing it into a skirt!

Karen, there is a dreadful cough/cold going around here. We've both had it and it was awful and lasted ages!

You always amaze me. You are quite creative and talented. If I had tried that it'd look like a cat sewed it together. ;)
