Knees. Rear end. Pockets. Crotch. Yikes!
The mending pile turned into a mountain this weekend, and I happened to have a spurt of energy, so I set to patching. Then I realized I was running out of patches.
So I thought, well maybe some of the kids would be okay with different colors. So I went around and asked if they wanted patches that blended or if they would like cool designs.
Only one child chose the blending. Yay!
I started out pretty tame.
But Kael was pleased, so I continued.
Kael loved that too. Feeling confident and inspired, I moved on to the next pair of pants, whose legs looked like so:
On to the next!
Tristan's pants turned out like this:
Tristan was well pleased. Triumph! Now for the piece de resistance...
Katie's pants from her mom's house were gifted with these lovely patches:
I now have to secure all the patches, as they are iron-on patches, but I secured Katie's before she had to leave. I used silver thread on the cloud and sun, which makes them seem to shine! And a lovely blue on the hearts. I think they turned out just adorably, and I hope they all want cute patches from here on out!!!
What do you think? Too cute or too much?
