...Bathrobe repair...

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

...and it needed to be 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 it won't get lost at Bible Camp this summer...

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


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

  2. i'm trying to mend MYSELF! i'm a real sicky....first cold i've had in a long time and i can't seem to get rid of it!

    love, k

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

  4. 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 make me smile. :)

    i hemmed a pair of jeans for myself last week. and i remade a shoulder bag for isaac's piano books yesterday. i have a pair of isaac's pants to patch and a pair of pants to make for maddie.

    i love sewing - even mending. :)

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