Necessary Needlework

Bird_patch

I have never, nor will I ever claim to be good at the delicate embroidery work like those I see among my other blogging friends. However, I have a feeling there will be much more necessary needlework in my future. This pair of jeans that belong to Mary were unstained and un-torn when we arrived here just over a week ago. And now, thanks to spending probably more time outside than in, they are stained, frayed and threadbare at the knees. So, just in time for spring, I whipped up a little birdie patch to cover her chubby bare knees.

  1. How cute and a clever idea. I would do that but sadly, as rough as my kids can be on there outdoor/play clothes, the patch won’t last but a few days.

  2. I love the thought of kids running around outside and getting holes in their jeans. What a cute way to patch it up. The kids keep getting holes, this could make for a very cute pair of jeans indeed!
