One of my favorite things to pull out of thecloset every winteris the cozy flannel button-up I got for just 25 cents at a thrift store a few years ago. Obviously, it wasn’t in the best shape to start out with, but that’s what made it extra comfy!
After my own wear and tear, though, it’s definitely needed some patching up. I usually bug my mom to bust out her needle and thread and make quick work of any rips or holes that need mending, but I’m beginning to realize there are some things adults should really just know how to do for themselves rather than knocking on mom or grandma’s door.
Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t go to them to learn a thing or two first. It just makes sense to headto the source when it comes to fixing or sprucing up our clothes, instead of sayinggoodbye to thatfavorite item before we’re ready to let itgo.
Take a look and let us know if we missed any other easy fixesyour mom or grandma taught you.
