This is the pile of mending/etc, Some of these are favourite t-shirts of Alex, which are too small for him, so they only need to be cut up with half put aside for an eventual t-shirt quilt (I'm thinking it would be nice for when he goes away to uni, so I've got a few years!), and the other half of the t-shirt to dusters. A few things to mend - a pair of pyjama bottoms, a cardigan (holes at seams in both of those) and a pair of jeans to hem... Another pair of jeans went in the bin - holes in places you really can't fix - and the flowery dress went back in the mending basket - it's Olivia's, but it's too short and we haven't yet worked out what to do with it (I suggested she just wear it with leggings, but she wants to add something to the bottom to lengthen it - we need a trip to a really good haberdashery department...) Finally, two t-shirts of Sarah's went back in the mending basket, as they are going to be converted to cushions, but we need some blanks, so another trip to somewhere is needed. They can wait.
T-shirt deconstructions here, along with the mended items.
