Mending Monday

a coat pocket for C...

(which, btw, has a LOVELY hand-sewn zipper, done by me when we were just barely dating at Yale... I tried to use the holes already IN the jacket to put in a new zipper, as the old one was broken. I'm super proud of how well it's lasted!)

and a patch on a pair of much loved jeans (also for C). I find that patching is never invisible, so I no longer really try. either they're going to be PATCHED and sturdy, or they're going to be ripped. so I used a pair of my jeans to mend C's jeans (mine were unpatchably ripped, so I cut off the legs to make myself shorts, and am using the discarded legs for various other projects... like this.)

It is Monday, isn't it?
