Do you hate it when you see a hole in one of your sheets or towels? Isn’t it disappointing?
There you are, getting good service from something, and suddenly you notice that small hole that tells you the end is near. Its life is nearly over.
Don’t mourn the loss yet! There’s a way you can save it from the trash (or rag box, like we keep on hand for greasy jobs in The Skunk Works – what HH calls our garage).

You don’t have to know how to sew seams to do this technique. Can you see how fun it can be to sew all over the place and not need to follow a certain line? If you can make a basic zig-zag stitch, you can do this.

I know it’s not like new again, but it’ll last a good long while yet.
I’m wondering if there are other ways to mend – ways that might be even easier. How do you handle the occasional sheet or towel that develops a hole?
