1  Patched-Up Jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Valgal on: December 25, 2008 05:02:14 PM
My first posted project Smiley

It's tricky to find jeans that fit my dd properly, so when she came home from school with hole in this pair I wanted to poke someone in the eye. I just spent a ton of money on Christmas but the girl is running out of pants, so I tapped into my inner Caroline Ingalls and worked with what I had.

Simply drew a heart shape in MS Word that was a little larger than the hole and used it as a template to cut a heart out of another pair of old jeans. I sewed a couple buttons on and then zig-zagged the patch to the jeans. The only tricky part was actually sewing them because the legs of these jeans are skinny, but I put plenty of pins in to keep it in place. She's really tickled by them.



(you know, now that I'm looking at them, I think a row of buttons near the bottom hem of the right leg would even this look out. I might go do that.)
