Mending with kids

patching painting sewing & other kid-friendly techniques
Nami Levy ; translated from Japanese by Nancy Marsden
Book - 2023

"Mending With Kids shows you how to take torn, stained and outgrown kids' clothes and make them better than before using a variety of simple techniques that you can actually do with your kids. This book is filled with helpful tips and techniques for patching, collage (with felt and fabrics), iron-ons, stenciling, darning, embroidery, hand-painting, and much more! Best of all, most of these techniques are easy enough for kids to join in and put their personal stamp on their clothes, which they absolutely love doing! And with your supervision, they'll pick up practical skills along the way. Templates for patches and stencils are included (and kids can trace things you have at home, like puzzle pieces and other fun shapes to expand their creative options). You'll even find a couple of zipper repair techniques to try out before going the replacement route, as well as easy stitching and darning techniques. You will love the chance to preserve and prolong your kids' wardrobe, and kids will love the chance to participate in saving the environment, exercising their creativity and having clothes that are special and unique (all while saving you some money!). It's a win-win-win collaboration, you, your kids, and this book"--Publisher's description.
