Mend it Better


Patch, hem, and darn new life into your torn and tired clothing. Kristin Roach’s creative techniques, along with original mending ideas from guest crafters, will inspire you to adjust your hemlines, play with creative stitches, add pops of color with vintage buttons, apply boldly patterned patches, and so much more. Simple step-by-step instructions and basic sewing supplies are all you need to make your worn clothing better than ever. You’ll love the fun and frugality of upcycling!

I’m so grateful to the whole team at Storey Publishing for giving me this opportunity to write this book. Their dedication to the project really made it (and me!) shine. They are wonderful to work with and quite the creative bunch of folks themselves!
