Patch it Up!

It’s unlikely that The Fableists jeans will wear through at the knees too quickly. They are pretty thick and rugged and definitely meant to last a kid or three!

But what can be done with them if they do start to wear in the knees? Before you grab the scissors and start cutting them down in to shorts (seriously – what childhood is complete without a pair of cut downs?) patch them up.

Old pieces of denim, or other fabrics make great patches but a lot of designers are making beautiful and original patches that can make your child’s jeans in to wearable art. Etsy is a great place to find all sorts of new and vintage patches that can be sewn on or (bonus points) ironed on.

A friend recently shared the gorgeous patches displayed below on The Fableists’ Facebook page and I couldn’t resist sharing them with you.

 

They are from Bellemine, a Montreal based operation set up by two women; illustrator Isabelle Arsenault, known for her children’s books and her childhood friend Jasmine Evangeliste.

Each design is a limited edition, with only 100 of each produced. Bellemine aims to reduce the amount of textiles that end up in landfills by offering a beautiful and original way to keep your clothes in action.

Their patches can be ironed on and used on a variety of materials, including denim, jersey, cotton and fine knits and they are machine washable in a cold cycle. What’s not to love?

Make Art Not War

The Fableists’ ‘Make Art Not War’ t-shirt, designed by Anthony Peters has an important message for children that is more timely now that ever. Three soldiers, in a classic stance, which echoes the monument to peacekeeping in Ottawa, Canada are armed with artists’ tools.

This is one of our most popular t-shirts – as chosen by the kids themselves – and we now have just a few left in size 3-4. Size 9-10 is also running low. You can find it at our web shop.
