I had planned on doing more fun stitching but, I have had two pair
of jeans needing repair. After doing lots of laundry and organization for
my girls I decided that it was time to get busy and get this little task
As I was looking through my daughters clothes I realized that several
pairs of jeans had holes in the knees. I asked Sarah and Hannah, my
daughters if they would like for me to repair them and they both
looked at me and said, “Mom they came that way…don’t you remember?”
“we pay for this?”
“Of course, how could I forget?”….
One pair did not come that way and Hannah insisted that they should
remain as they were. (ragged).
All I can say is that the denim has character.
All this being said; as I was stitching the jeans last night I thought of Japanese
Boro and a lovely explanation I found was :
“In Japan, mended and patched textiles are referred to as ‘boro‘, or rags. “-Sri Threads
Jude at Spritcloth also mentioned it yesterday at her blog:
Also, this post,because of its lovely stitching, inspired me to get my denim jeans “patched”…
