As a parent, there will be so many skills and knowledge you wish you had. While it may feel like many problems could be solved with an endless skill set, there’s only so much you can know. Of the desired skills, one that’s fairly achievable and super useful is some basic sewing skills. Here’s why you should prioritize this.
Kids Wear Clothes Out So Easily
Children love to run around and play outside. A huge part of being young is being free to get grubby and make a mess, and while this is so much fun for the kids it does impact on their clothing. The amount of holes and lost buttons that they manage to achieve is quite impressive, and it would be great if you could fix these easily.
Can Save Loads of Money
If every time you find a hole or tear you feel the need to replace the item with a new one then this can be very costly. Often these damages from wear and tear are simple to fix and will stop you from having to buy new items all the time.
Much Less Wasteful
As well as the monetary cost, replacing clothes due to holes or missing buttons is a terrible waste of resources. Fixing them is an ethical, sustainable choice.
