mending plaid fabric
I am looking for instructions for mending a 1/2″ square hole in a pair of cashmere/wool slacks. I have an inconspicuous spot from which to take a patch but I want the patched place to be as invisible as possible. I seem to remember an article in Threads which showed a method of weaving in the individual threads from the patch…any suggestions will be appreciated.
I just tried Search for "reweaving",
'patch" and "fabric repair", but couldn't find the article that *I clearly remember seeing* lately, too! The author used colored threads to show exactly what they were describing... Others here have much better Google-foo than I, though - hope someone can help!
I've had some success using a fine crochet hook, btw...
Bright Blessings and Happy Mending!
Kenneth King had an article in number 144, Sept. 09,pg.62. The magazine has spools of thread on the cover.
That's the one I was thinking
That's the one I was thinking of! Thanks! K
