Vintage Clothing Patches

LuluComment

Yesterday on my way to work I tripped and scraped both of my knees. Luckily, I was not too far away from my apartment so I walked back and cleaned up. Unfortunately, I was wearing a pair of woven/lacy tights which got torn at the knees. I won't be able to wear them with shorter skirts and dresses but I can salvage them to wear under long skirts. I can't patch up my tights but, you can usually patch up most clothing.

When I was a child our house was surrounded by hilly forests and rolling fields. I would run around and have fun playing outside. I would often times come home with holes in the knees of my pants from scrapping around a bit too much. My mom would sew heart and rainbow patches over the holes.

Thinking of the fun patches that my mom used to use inspired me to search on Etsy where I found a dealer named TesoroViejo that has lots of cool vintage patches for sale at incredibly cheap prices...
