Upcycling Tutorial: How to start patching your clothes

Learn to prepare patches to repair your clothes with Ofelia & Antelmo

Fixing damaged clothes is not only good for our pocket, but also for the environment. Patches are a canvas on which you can paint, draw, and embroider: they allow us to extend the life of our favourite garments in style.

Gabriela Martinez, specialist in embroidery and textile art and creator of Ofelia & Antelmo (@ofeliayantelmo), will show us the first step in fixing and adding personality to our torn or stained clothes with patches that you can even embroider if you so fancy. You can see the tutorial here.

Materials:

- Fabric for the patches.
- Thread and needle.
- Scissors.
- Pins.
- An embroidery ring.
