Bring new life to your old clothes and fabrics with this fun, easy-to-follow guide to modern mending. In Australia, we send millions of tonnes of clothing to landfill each year. In fact, our clothing consumption is one of the highest in the world. But the good news is that mending is trending and it's never been easier to repair and reinvent your favourite clothes. Inspired by the slow fashion movement taking over the world, Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald has created a comprehensive guide to mending your own clothes that combines creativity and sustainability. In Modern Mending she demystifies mending and shares step-by-step instructions for a range of techniques, including stitching, darning, patching, needle felting and machine darning. So next time you tear your favourite jeans or find a hole in your jumper think twice before throwing them away. With MODERN MENDING you'll gain the skills and confidence needed to rebel against fast fashion.
