I know that this may come as a shock to many, but you can actually mend your sock instead of throwing it in the trash if you happen to make a hole in it. It takes 3 minutes tops and you only need basic sewing tools.
Mending has never been part of my sewing vocabulary. Or my everyday life for that matter.
Not because I hate to do it, I don’t, but somehow my clothes divided into two categories: Wearable and Not. The later was either cloths in good condition that didn’t fit size-wise or ready to fall apart.
