19. Hosiery & Hairspray
Yep! You probably already know that you can stop a run in a pair of pantyhose with clear nail polish, but why not just prevent the runs in the first place with hairspray? Give them a quick spray with an aerosol can, paying special attention to the areas that are prone to runs.
20. Clever Patchwork
This makes me want to go and rip a few holes in my daughter’s jeans! How adorable is this? Get creative with your patchwork and turn a rip into something unique and charming. You can use Heat n’ Bond to attach the patch, and then a bit of embroidery floss to not only help keep the patch in place, but make a cool design. See more details here.
