Mending rips and tears…

So, take one five year old boy, add a non uniform day and mix with his favourite jeans.

Bake for about six hours.

What do you get?

Yup – you guess it – ripped jeans and a five year old’s tears.

But this wasn’t quite the disaster it seems. A while ago on pinterest, images of monster themed patched up jeans were doing the rounds. I don’t know where these originated from, but if you do then let me know and I’ll give them credit for a fantastic idea.

Now it’s not as if I haven’t had a shortage of ripped trousers and jeans to try this on. On the contrary, there has been a painfully ready supply, but most of the rips have been far too extensive to patch up in this way.

Time was of the essence so that the Monkey could wake to mended jeans and so I took only a few photos.

And the result?

One happy monkey, all tears forgotten, and favourite jeans restored to his affection.

Well loved jeans.

I don’t know how long the mend will last as the Monkey is hard on the knees of his trousers, but for now all is well.
