Patch Work

Little guys can wear holes through his jeans faster than they can outgrow them. Before resorting to the store-bought iron-on patches, I thought I’d give this idea a try. The patches are made from another old pair of jeans. The stitching was a bit tricky on the leg holes were too small to fit around the arm of the sewing machine. Each patch was pinned on thoroughly and then maneuvered through the opening of each leg hole  with just enough room for the presser foot to follow the borders. Each patch is straight-stitched and gone over again with a wide zig-zag in golden-yellow to match the original stitch work on the jeans. These are not only soft and comfortable, but durable too.
