Make Do and Mend May

Make Do and Mend!

Keeping a family in clothing isn't always easy.  Many folks use credit cards to keep their kiddos covered.  I depend on gifts, hand-me-downs, yard sales, thrift shops, and my sewing skills. 

This month I've mended:

3 pairs of jeans
1 pair of dress slacks
1 pair of shorts
1 skirt
1 pair Crocs shoes

I have also cut up clothes for rags.

We've made do by going to thrift stores and yard sales to supplement my children's clothing.

*Make Do and Mend is available through Amazon.  I am no longer an affiliate.

May I suggest?


  1. That looks like an interesting read. I wonder if the library has it? I will have to check.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I don't know Wendi, it's on my want to read list. If you look on Amazon, it has a good sized excerpt.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
