Before I had an embroidery machine I thought she would be helpful to mend holes. It was my main argument in favour of buying such a machine as having to very active children my pile of things to mend is quite high.
Actually I do mend but rarely as holes are mainly at the knees and to mend there I need to open the seams of the leg. I always deem that to be too much work so I just use an iron-on patch
But sometimes there is a tiny hole that can be embroidered using my small 1.5x4inch hoop. Todays picture shows the result of such mending on my daughter’s favorite leggings. Doesn’t it look like she spilled some nail polish over it?
