Mend one thing
We all know that we should repair our ripped clothes instead of just tossing them out. But how many of us actually do it? We tend to think it’s too time consuming or that we need to use a sewing machine, and we get overwhelmed at the thought. But changing your mindset on this could save a lot of your future clothes, save you money, and make a positive long term impact on the environment.
So, how do we get over the mending hump? Start with one project. Just one. There are probably a few items in your closet that need a hem repair or a hole sewn up and instead of committing to fixing all of them, just commit to mending one.
Let’s say you are going to fix a hem that has come undone. There are countless youtube videos and instructables online that can guide you step by step on how to do this without a sewing machine. It will probably take you all of ten minutes.
And materials? The only materials most mending jobs require are one of those cheap little sewing kits that you can get at just about any pharmacy or grocery store for about 4 dollars.
And once you see how easy it is, you might just go ahead and tackle the next mending job.
