How To Patch Your Moth Eaten Sweaters

  • Pin it

What season are we in right now? Yeah, I know, the Holiday season! That too, but what else? Here, I’ll tell you: it’s cashmere season! Didn’t you know?

Don’t you just love the feeling of wearing a good cashmere piece? Are you willing to share your favorite cashmere cardi with the moths? I’m not! I want to be the only one enjoying the joys of cashmere and I would take great pleasure in ruining a good cashmere meal for those moths!

So I’m guessing Eva Kisevalter, the DJ turned designer behind Stella Neptune felt quite the same thing. So she made some pretty fancy appliqués for us to patch our lovely cashmere pieces! There’s no sewing involved so the patches will be good for you even if you’re not the magic sewing fairy or you simply discovered your moth hole right now and you’re on the run. They come in various shapes and patterns: moths, leaves, band aids. All you need is a hot iron and bam! The nasty hole is gone, gone, gone! Aren’t they lovely? (Stella Neptune)

A rather cute and nifty idea to give new life to an older sweater! :)

Forgive me if I sound so arrogant often: but I did such things already at 12/13? I’ve still boxes with all sorts of (now vintage!) applications. I did the most fun things with them. When young and wild I had huge butterfly on the crotch of old cut off jeans…*facepalm* as an example. Those applications were available on the market and special stores whom all disappeared when “fast fashion” and label madness in the “big bubble”came up end 80’s early 90’s….:-((
I even saved old zippers, buttons and such things when old clothes really were not wearable anymore.
Take notice creative people: times have changed, the big bubble bursted, save what you can and (try to) use it.
