|design and style, vintage baby|
I did find this excellent tutorial about hand darning denim, it all seems so interesting I think I'm gonna try it. Currently when folks bring me blown out jeans, I sew a reinforcement patch in behind the tear. It tends to show a little, but since these are usually crotch seams I kinda hope no one is looking too close.
I already own 6 sewing machines while living in a one bedroom apartment, so I think I will just have to continue to lust after the vintage Singer and let other folks own it. I am gonna try my machine with some fancy threads though. I think a $15 investment in heavy cotton is coming up.
