This episode is the second featuring my conversation with mending-legend, Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald. Two years ago Erin wrote a book called Modern Mending, which I legitimately feel may be the very best mending book out there.

So inspired by this episode! I have far more hacked and mended ready-made charity shop finds in my wardrobe than me-mades from scratch, but I hadn’t previously thought of those as ‘counting’ for Me-Made May!

Thanks heaps for your lovely comment. I thrilled that this episode inspired you! Congrats on all your hacked and mended charity shop items! Include them in your MMM challenge with pride. All the best xx
