Make do and mend

I am pretty rubbish at needlework. I would love to be able to run up a pair of curtains or make a cushion, but I don’t even own a working sewing machine and haven’t attempted to make anything for years. This will be something I might have a go at when I retire! However, I can mend an item of clothing and hem a skirt. This morning I found a small hole in a favourite cardigan so I mended that. It’s not exactly invisible, but it is good enough to make it wearable 🙂


So that’s one frugal thing before I even left for work! Let’s hope the rest of the week follows suit 🙂

    Same here! Just another mender. Last week it was one son’s t shirt, a few weeks ago it was another son’s pajama bottoms, and today it was a pair of hubby’s socks!
