tutorial to patch and embroider a garment

One of the things that I value the most about textile is its ability to adapt. For example, we can undo a jersey that we do not like and weave it again to give it a new look. Or we can use repair stitches to   extend the life of our clothes. With some simple stitches we can keep using that pair of socks that we love so much or that coat whose hem is coming unstitched… No doubt, embroidery offers endless possibilities to make our clothes “immortal” and nowadays that’s a very important lesson to integrate in our everyday patterns. We must remember that the fashion industry is one of the major polluting industries in the world.

Because of this (and perhaps also because of my grunge past), I decided to patch one of my favorite shirts and share the process with you, from darning to embroidery, in order to encourage you to value those clothes doomed to the trash and give them a second chance.
