VISIBLE MENDING
Mollie Makes|Issue 138
MAKE IT!

MATERIALS

  • Knitwear with a hole Darning yarn in different colours (we used Laine St Pierre Darning Wool from www.shopbeyondmeasure.co.uk) Sewing needle Tapestry needle

01 Position the knitwear with the hole facing up. Leaving a good amount of room around the hole to prevent any further unravelling, thread the sewing needle with the first coloured yarn, then bring it up from the inside of the jumper, above the hole and to the right. Take the needle back down roughly 0.5cm (¼) along, bring it back up 0.25cm ( 1 /8) along, then take it back down over the other side of the hole. Repeat the same process of going under, over, then under the fabric again, as shown, to create the first row of mending.

VIBRANT COLOUR AND BOLD PATTERN FILL GERI SAMMUT-ALESSI'S BEAUTIFUL HOME

Geri Sammut-Alessi describes her Milton Keynes home as a 'land of magnolia' when she and husband Andrew first bought it nine years ago. The five-bedroom, new-build house in Milton Keynes was just two years old, and "very uninspiring," Geri says. "It was such a challenge to decorate but we are incredibly proud of the personality and character we've added."
