Mending is sewing, right?

Well, probably not this mending! My grandfather is visiting us for Christmas break and he brought me a few mending projects to do. He tried to cut a change pocket out of the pocket of a tweed jacket and chopped a hole in the pocket lining. Also, he tried to get my 13 year old brother to cut through the stitching stitching the back pocket of his pants closed and my (well-meaning but sewingly moronic) brother chopped a slit in the pants pocket instead.

Mending tape to the rescue! It's nice to be able to do such a useful repair with so little trouble. And now I have a reputation as a sewing magician because I fixed them so fast. Haha.
