I repaired something! OMG!

Ask anyone – I am the absolute worst when it comes to repairs and mending.  I’d sooner throw a garment out than re-attach a fallen hem.

So, I am extremely proud to announce that I, the worst mender in the multiverse, has re-attached two buttons to a pair of jeans.  I sound over-dramatic, but it’s true.  I’ve been safety-pinning these jeans for 6 months now, and they’ve narrowly escaped the D.I. bin more than once.

But I love these jeans, so I decided to fix ‘em up nice.  Ages ago, my brother gave me a small tin full of antique military buttons.  Buttons that by chance, work perfectly with these jeans!  (Hooray!)


There are a set of five buttons on each pocket that have also popped off – I’m not holding my breath that I’ll ever get around to fixing those (actually quite inconvenient to button pockets closed, but it sure did look nice….)

  1. I have jeans that has button up pockets - I call them my sailor pants. :D Too tubby to fit into them at the moment though...
