Dec.15 th… torn denim jeans,mug rugs and kiffles

Or maybe I should just say..”all in a day’s work “😄

My son has this problem of  tearing his denim jeans right by the pocket ,it is always on the right side. I think it must be the wallet pocket. Here is how I fix them..

I cut a strip of  denim from old pants or denim fabric scraps,then glue the strip to the back side of torn jeans.

I used the lighter side of denim strip for the jeans are faded. 

I rip the seam of the pocket down to where  you can put the tear together as much as you can. Glue the fabric to the strip well,you don’t want the strip to move on you…wait a bit for the glue to dry. I usually start to work on another pair of jeans with the same problem.

Then you sew ,I usually use a stitch that won’t let the fabric fray .

After repairing the tear,place the pocket of jean down,and sew it in place . Ta da… your done!

Two pairs of pants ready to be wore again.

I received these beautiful mug rugs from a blogging friend. It took them close to a month for them to go from Hungary to the USA. I was beginning to think that they were lost by postal service,when I was pleasantly surprised by them this week!! I love them!

The fronts

The backs…. aren’t they delightful!!

And yes,I’m slowly getting cookies made for Christmas. Today I made the special ones that my Grammy Tress made. I look forward to making these special cookies , they bring back warm memories.

Have a lovely weekend, Deb

      Thank you! Nóra so does lovely work, I enjoy her blogs. In the kiffles ,are pecans,sugar and egg whites. I’ll have to do a post on them as they aren’t your normal cook dough,as these are made with yeast.

    Very neat darning, I must try that with the glue. Those mug rugs are lovely and the Christmas tree one is very festive, one you can being out every year, even just as a table decoration, all the way from Hungary. When my sister-in-law sends something in the post to us from the US, it comes via France, not sure why, but it gets covered in French custom stamps, still trying to work that one out 🙂

      The glue sure helps me out. It’s neat to have a mug rug for holidays and one for though the year. Those mug rug most of sailed around the world to get here. :))
