  • My husband does with jeans. We call them our Wall-E jeans. I have a pair that was worn by the chub rub and he fixed them by cutting up a pair of outgrown pants. I will wear those things until they are worn to threads.

  • No, not ever. I really NEVER sew anything.

  • If it is something that I really love I will sew it.

  • Depends on what the problem is. If its just a seam then I do or small hole or a button falling off. I have patched things before with iron on patches (sometimes it works out; sometimes not). I am not very good at sewing so if it looks like its beyond my capabilities then I dont attempt it. I've wasted my time before trying to fix things that I just had no business trying to fix lol

  • If it's in a place that won't get re-torn I will. If it's a seam with lots of stress lol, I just pass it on to the rags pile. If it's a favorite, it'll be an around the house clothes.
