My son-in-law caught his new duck-down filled jacket on a barbed wire fence and asked if I could mend it. An AWKWARD thing to mend.
But mothers-in-law come in useful at times. First I did a herringbone stitch to keep the edges stable. I got a piece of bias binding folded and sewed it into a right-angle and then hem stitched it onto the jacket, being careful not to go through to the lining beneath.
I was pretty pleased with the result – and so was my son-in-law!
This is my entry for our ‘One-a-Week’ Photo Challenge, which goes live each Tuesday.
All the weeks’ prompts are listed below so you can be looking out for the subjects. I like to get a few sitting in my drafts, as life can suddenly get busy at times.
Have you found anything AWKWARD recently – or maybe you have an AWKWARD photo in your archive. Cathy of Nanacathy and I created the list for fun, Rainbow Jane created the graphics for us – feel free to add any prose or poetry if the prompt inspires and leave a link in the comments below. It is always inspiring to see the variety of responses each prompt brings forth.
