Bring Me Your Worn

After 25 years of mending jeans, I finally learned, by accident, how to do it right. When that cold wind starts to howl, it’s kind of nice to have the holes sealed up, even in jeans. So I did a little weatherproofing today.

These are my jeans mending rules:

  1. make use of the sewing machine’s free arm
  2. use clear nylon thread on top
  3. use regular thread in the bobbin
  4. use a zig zag stitch and work from the right side
  5. if the jeans wearer is older than 4, leave the fraying as it is

When it turns out good, it’s actually kind of fun to mend jeans. Wow, I never thought I’d say that.
