mending a hole

There was a hole in a brand new trouser
of little grandson
(someone probably snipped off a thread
and snipped into the fabric as well)
Although daughter is a good seamstress herself ...
these kind of things always end up on my plate
I had an idea !
The little one likes books,
now he knows there is always someone who will read aloud, and
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
is his favorite of late :
he loves to poke his tiny fingers through all the holes
First some interface on the inside
my green embroidery floss and a cup of tea
and a sharp needle
and this is what I ended up with !
(so sorry the little one can't see the caterpillar on his bum ...
or ... I might make the butterfly,
if he gets a hole on his knee)

6 opmerkingen:

  1. That is so good - but I think you've just set him a challenge for the knees!

  2. Heel erg leuk! Dat wordt vast zijn lievelingsbroek!

  3. Fajny pomysł. Ja też podobnie łatam dziury albo plamy.

  4. When a 'hole' turns out as beautiful as it does right now, it is only logical that these things end up on your plate ..... ;-) ....
    No-one mends as beautifully as you !! Thanks !!! Daughter.
