At least we have a guest for you. Audrey .slacks
She makes gorgeous patches out of reclaimed denim 😍
We are so excited to introduce her today.
Hi! I’m Audrey of Sensible Slacks. I live in Detroit, MI, USA. I love remaking clothing, finding ways to reduce fabric waste and extending the life of my favorite items. I’ve also always been fascinated with embroidery and watching a piece come together. Sensible Slacks grew out of these interests.
Sensible Slacks focuses mostly on denim, patchwork and embroidery. I create handmade patches from reused denim. I like to do a variety of shapes, but the star shape is my favorite. Once I have the patches, I use them to repair damaged vintage jeans, or sell them individually so that people can incorporate them into their own repairs.
Lately, I’ve been adding hand embroidery to the finished patches. I like the idea of adding layers of detail that will combine to fully personalize an item.
I love looking at Mending Mayhem and seeing the variety of possibilities within mending. I’m excited for this chance to introduce myself- thanks so much for reading! Please feel free to get in touch. As always, looking forward to seeing everyone’s work.
