Making Cute Patches For Jeans
Patching jeans is easy. You can buy iron on denim patches at any store that sells basic sewing supplies and they take about 2 minutes to slap on. Since my goal is for my daughter to continue wearing these jeans though, I figured my best course of action would be to make a cute patch.
First, I trimmed the frayed edges and found a cookie cutter that would cover the hole. A plain circle or square might be easier if you haven't done much sewing.
Pin the patch to the jeans and slide the jeans over the sewing machine. They may fit better if you roll up the leg of the jeans. Do the same zigzag or satin stitch around the edge of the denim.
