How to Patch a Hole, Mend a Seam, and Fix a Hem

"HOW TO PATCH A HOLE, MEND A SEAM, AND FIX A HEM-Sewing Basics: With only a few sewing supplies and the most basic stitches, you can repair holes, seams, and hems on your garments and extend the life of your clothes."

Imagine all the things you could spell with nine hole buttons! Would be cute to embellish a card or gift. The possibilities are endless....

Pretty solution to tights with toe holes or too short but still fit the waist. Cute leggings! (Pattern for sale on Etsy, but these would be super easy to do without a pattern.)
