Little Things

I've had a few little projects lately that just don't seem enough for a post by themselves. So here are a bunch of little things in one post!

I put some patches in some jeans for my daughter.

This pair had the smallest hole
I used pink thread to sew the patch in, to match the contrast stitching on the pants.
This pair was the worst. Giant hole in the left knee, and long narrow thin spot in the right knee.

Used dark blue thread to tack the patch on.
Also used the dark blue thread to reinforce the thin spot on the other knee.
Added a heart shaped patch to the knee of these jeans.
Then I tackled a few things for myself. Mainly, removing the ruffles from this tank top.

I disliked the ruffles around the neckline.
I like it much better now!

I must say that the final picture on the pats made me smile. I bet she loves those jeans.
And how nice to have your top ready to wear.
Thanks for sharing.

Sometimes it takes so little to make a big change!

And the heart-shaped patch fits right in with the other decoration on the jeans - good idea.
