Mend it Monday

DEC 28, 2015 updated May 20, 2021

These last few days of 2015 offer the perfect opportunity to take stock of the abundance of the past year and to get organized for all that 2016 has to offer. Part of my process this year is going to include another attempt at a wardrobe purge, an activity that always seems to stall when I reach the point of having a pile of my favorite clothes that need a little mending. But in an effort not to take last year's chores into this new year, here's to spending a little time in the coming evenings showing some love to the garments that have served me so well. I've rounded up the tutorials I'll be using as I tackle some projects over the next few days, so please do join me! Stay motivated by sharing your progress with #makeitmonday on your social channel of choice, and please do share your favorite mending tutorials, too!
