Patch Jeans With Flair... for kids or adults too
Here is a quick tutorial on how I patched my Jeans, this looks more kid like though so I put it here.
First you want to collect your materials needed.Collect the materials Needed
Pre made patch (purchased from Walmart)
Fabric for appliqué
Cookie cutter to use as template
Stamp to transfer the pattern
embroidery flossNot shown
scissors, needle, thimble, embroidery hoop and heat and bond
Trim the edges of your hole to remove loose threads that will stick out. Cut out a patch that will cover the hole, I used the cookie cutter for a pattern. also cut out an appliqué to put on top of the patch use heat and bond to attach the appliqué (for me it was the flower) and iron the pieces together.
Once the patch has cooled use the embroidery floss to sew the edges down of the patches and help keep the patch in place longer.
and here they are on.
