Indigo denim boro mending. "Indigo" from the Greek "indicon"= India. the plant dye has been used for 4,000 yrs in the East. Denim originated in two places: the French town of Nîmes, hence 'denim'; and in India, where denim trousers were worn by the sailors of Dhunga, came to be known as dungarees. The word "jeans" comes from the French phrase "bleu de Gênes", literally the blue of Genoa. during the Renaissance, denim was sold through the harbour of Genoa, made near Turin Italy. jean, detail, cloth, blue, stitch, indigo denim, sashiko

"I believe in creatively mending clothing because it connects me to a deeper desire to care for, repair, and tend to the worn-out places within myself and in my relationships with others. Mending for me is an act of devotion that nourishes my sense of personal agency." sew, patch work, mend cloth, patchwerkrepurpos, quilt, creativ mend, darn, textil, creative mending

Bleach printing. Could be a good way of disguising bleach splashes on clothes.
Flame sock darn. Not entirely happy. Very happy that it's so conspicuous, but the downside is you can see my errors. I didn't catch some of my warps; working from the other side was hard to see them- you are supposed to darn from the back of the item. And my rows were a little far apart, or my darning wool was on the thin side, depending on how you look at it. Either way, the result is the same: a little thin, though this has strengthened a very thin, worn sock considerably. embroid color, embellish knit, darn, socks, textil, fabric, fiber, creative mending, beauti knit
