Sometimes the sewing that is most appreciated by the ones you love is also the least glamorous.
I reeeeeeeeeaaaaalllllllllyyyyy do not like doing mending, but I am trying to have a better attitude about it. I’m not talking about hemming your neighbors’ brothers pants for free just because they ask. (Hey, my time is valuable!) But is it really so awful to take 5 minutes to resew a button on? Or 15 to turn a kid’s ripped up jeans into summer shorts?
It’s so easy for me to forget that these little things are a big deal to my kids and my husband, and this is my public resolve to put these little “un-pin-worthy” projects a little higher up in my sewing priority list.
How about you?
