This book is a perfect guide to repairing and restoring your clothes and belongings in an artistic and thoughtful way. The author's philosophy of mending and reusing items is based on the ideas of mindfulness and wabi-sabi (an appreciation of old and imperfect things). Rips, holes and stains become transformed using crochet, felting, darning, simple embroidery and sewing. All the flaws are cleverly turned into features. The book covers basic mending techniques as well as invisible and statement mending.
