But how best to do that? I could put a patch on top of the hole or underneath, and try to machine- or hand-stitch for an unobtrusive fix, but I suspect it would just look ... clumsy.
Recently, though, I learned about Japanese boro textiles and shashiko embroidery. Hmmm. Why not go bold?
There's a good introductory article on Design Sponge. I'm thinking I should probably get a little piece of denim and some patching fabric to practice with. Not to mention shashiko needles and thread.
Because and important part of learning a new craft is getting all the right tools and gear. Right?
I'll let you know how it goes!
