I just wanted to throw this out there for anyone who may have some examples of creative mending you have done. It could be in a book! Did that get your attention? Kristin Roach of Craft Leftovers is writing a book about creative mending and she's looking for great examples and techniques to possibly be in the book.
From Craft Leftovers:
To submit your best example of a creative mending technique, please send: a close-up photo jpeg of your finished work (a scrap piece of fabric is fine—it doesn’t need to be a full piece of clothing or finished object) along with the submission form by January 26. Multiple examples of interesting work are very welcome!
Short notice, so get your skates on! Head over to Craft Leftovers and check out exactly what you have to do.
