Description of this Book

Throwing away damaged, yet beloved, clothes can sometimes be one of the saddest things, but what if you were able to fix those holes and extend their life? With Mend & Patch, you can learn to take care of your clothes, mending, patching and repairing so you can cherish all your garments. In the furthest corner of her clothes store in Stockholm, Sweden, Kerstin has a mending studio. When it's quiet in the shop, she sits by her sewing machine and gives a new lease of life to people's favourite jeans. Whatever the wear and tear, Kerstin arms you with the skills and ideas you need to mend your own clothes. Find out emergency tips for mending in a hurry, enhance your clothes with decorative stitches and learn to mend for and with different materials, including leather, cotton, wool and denim. Packed full of simple fixes, as well as more advanced techniques, this book is perfect for sewers, crafters, and fashion lovers of all abilities.
