Mend Your Own Jeans

I ripped my favorite pair of denim capris yesterday and it is definitely not in the budget to get a new pair right now. So, I pulled out my handy dandy textile adhesive and some denim fabric scraps. Voila, now my capris will last a few more months.

I use Aleene’s Super Fabric Textile Adhesive. It can be found at WalMart for about $3.00. This stuff is amazing. (It is also very toxic, so use it carefully.) Once the glue dries, you can machine wash the clothing and it should stay adhered. I’ve used the stuff to patch clothing, put a skirt together out of old jeans, adhere a button to a pillow and ‘decorate’ clothing with beads or other ‘flair.’
