Plug Holes With Style

Mending clothes is a statement against disposable consumption. And this may be quite conspicuous!


Do you also have this basket full of clothes that have a hole somewhere and bed linen that is missing some buttons? Unfortunately, this is resting on me because I am waiting for this super cosy day when I have nothing to do, it is raining cats and dogs outside and Miss C., our little dog, doesn't want to go out too long.


For many, it is not worth patching up, because today clothes have become cheap disposable goods. And many don't know how to handle thread and needle. But all this is changing a lot at the moment. Flicken is a statement against disposable consumption. That's how you can see patchwork. These little works of art are inspirations and show beautiful, visible patchwork art. You can learn how to sew, embroider, cramp or stuff with many Youtube videos. (Picture: Fibre Alchemy)


The crack


Such angular cracks usually appear when you get stuck somewhere. This crack is underlaid with a darker layer of fabric, which visually highlights the crack. The white of the torn jeans fabric is visibly supported with white stitches. So the cracks are cleaned with white stitches, and the underlay is fastened with white front stitches. (Picture: Pinterest)


The Patch

For larger holes, you can either sew on a fabric patch or fill the hole from below with a fabric patch and make it visible. Also here the tear edges are cleaned with visible light yarn and the patch is fixed. (Picture: The Bandana Almanac)


The web stitches

The easiest way to mend is to weigh with the machine. The fabric is also sewn crosswise with a kind of pre-stitch and thus held together again. The colour of the thread is normally chosen so that the patchwork cannot be seen. Here it is exactly the other way round. The hole in the fabric is visibly patched with coarse, contrasting yarn. The yarn threads are woven. (Picture: Pinterest)


The Statement

Just recently I talked to a friend about moths and mothballs. Something you practically don't know anymore. Clothes are often stored in garment sacks, and by washing and ironing, moths are no longer present in wool. Thus the scent of mothballs, which many used to wear in their clothes, especially in suits, has disappeared. But there are still holes in the sweaters and other knitwear. Perfectly mended, they are stitched with the same yarn. The last sweater my mother mended for me was grey, and she stuffed the patch beautifully with ultramarine blue yarn and stitch. She was an haute couture tailor and handicrafts teacher and always very modern. This sweater was not stitched but in a kind of weaving stitch, which doesn't make the patches elastic anymore. These patches are also visible and ultramarine blue. And the sweater got something like tattoos in this way. (Picture about: Rue de Beautreillis)


The embroidery

These small samples on a sweater show how artistically you can decorate, mend and reinforce knitwear with front stitches. (Picture: Indulgy)


The socks

Can anyone else knit socks? For a long time, this manual work was part of general education. Even knitted socks have a very special charm because they are a small handicraft in everyday life. Once they've come through, you can patch them up in such a charming way. (Picture: Instagram)


The top

Torn jeans can also be a work of art. Namely, if you reinforce the holes and create lace ornaments. (Picture: Pinterest)


Almost Japanese

There's a classic old Japanese mending technique called Sashiko. This involves repairing clothes with the help of fabric remnants and very simple pre-stitches. This small, simple example shows how pretty it looks on Western clothing. (Picture: Pinterest)


The colour

If you patch visibly, then you can play charmingly with colours and decorate the patchwork with them. The choice of yarn and thread can also be very different from the existing textile. The irregular becomes a design element. (Picture: The Yarn Loop)
