Grey tee mending


Does anyone else get little tears in the front of their shirt? I'm so confused where they come from! I got some on a relatively new shirt (new this winter) and was devastated. The shirt looked crap leaving the holes there, but I had no clue how to mend it.

This shirt is modal fabric which is lovely and soft (and from a ethical brand) and supposedly well wearing. I was worried that mending would result in distortion of the fabric or just look poorly done.

I used a scrap of interfacing fabric leftover from a previous sewing project and pinned this behind the holes. I then embroidered on the interfacing and fabric to cover the holes. I then trimmed the excess interfacing away. The mending is very visible but decorative.

And I think it looks okay/not too noticeable :)
