Mending isn’t just repairing tears and holes. Often when a garment gets a stain the choice is donate, throw away or hang in the closet. No matter how much we love it because we don’t know how to remove or fix the stain. The technique we’re sharing in this tutorial is making patches or appliques with fabric cut outs, embroidery and beads that not only cover stains but add personality and life to your wardrobe. It’s authentic #fashion fixing.
Fabric with bold shapes to cut out (flowers, whales, rainbows, etc)
Good sharp scissors for “fussy” cutting
Double sided interfacing
