I was fixing the sleeves of an old jacket today, at least one sleeve, I kept the other one for tomorrow :) I had a look for the technique at my Thérèse de Dillmont book (my bible:) and they call it 'Swiss darning'; in the example above you can see how to fix a hole in a knitted cloth, which was fortunately not the case with me, I only had to reinforce the stitches. Tomorrow I will use more shades of brown to make the darning look a bit like a landscape. an awesome technique to repair socks…

garment no.6

This garment belongs to Vibeke, a grey cardigan with a hole in the neck seam. I have used a mustard colour thread as I felt this stood out well in contrast to the grey but also worked well with the dark blue turquoise of the vintage Kimono lining fabric I used as the patch. I have used for the detail the linked seven treausres or Shippo tsunagi stitch drawing out a grid first along with a template. I have used a fabric pen that disappears when steam is applied, you can find them here.

Alternatively, pillage your patch fabrics from worn and washed articles.
