About Darning: Repair, Make, Mend:
Climate change is making us rethink how we use resources and the consequences of fast-fashion. Re-using and mending our clothes has become a mark of pride. This is visible mending, more akin to embroidery and embellishment, that will make your favorite clothing even more personal and help save it from landfill. Fully illustrated with color photography, detailed step-by-step images, and easy-to-follow techniques (even for beginners). Twelve darning techniques are covered in detail with step-by-step instructions including: Seed stitch, square darning, Reversible darns, Seed and square darn, Triangular darns, English darning, Accordion darning, Appliqué, Reverse appliqué, Chain darning, Honeycomb Darning and the decorative Tambourine darning. Ten chapters cover mending sweaters, shirts, denim, items in the home as well as accessories, such as scarves and bags.
