I tried this twice, once with a pair of stretch jeans and another with just a normal pair.

i don't suggest trying it with a pair that are stretch, because what happen was that the fabric and the squishy part of my thigh "bubbled" out of the hole (looks as gross as you can imagine).  i had used two fat quarters from a quilter's grab-bag, so the fabric wasnt very thick.

it might work if you use a stiffer fabric, or lay a coat of the fabric glue/stiffener on the other side of the fabric before glueing it in place.

On the normal pair of jeans, that were a lot looser, it worked great, and i ended up cutting more holes in that pair of jeans to do the "patch" look.

hope this info helps, and have a great day,

Awe man, i wish i could tell you, but the bottle ran out a long time ago.

  I used some cheap stuff i got in Walmart's Fabric department.  It was a gold container with white writing and a white lid.  I wouldn't recommend it because it took FOREVER to dry.  Wish i could help you more, sorry!

as far as adhesive, i usually use gemtac's fabric glue for clothing. i get mine at michael's, so it shouldn't be too hard to track down. it's always held pretty good for me, but i don't think i've used it in anything that would get as much friction as the my inner thigh.

I really hate when this happens - it's the worst!!!  My solution is a little differentthan most, but I always think backwards and it actually works (despite the fact that my mom said I was doing it wrong and it would NEVER work!).  I by the denim iron-on patches and turn my jeans inside out and carefully lay it out and iron them in - backwards!  This way I can get a little more coverage and the rips line up and the adhesive binds them back and the fix is "invisible".  It prevents my jeans from ripping again in other places by reinforcing them.  As you may well know, patches are never the most comfy, but it gives new life to my jeans and I've taken to wearing Spankx shorts with them and it doesn't bother me at all.  Plus, the Spanx give me a little smoothing benefit that anyone can use and are so comfy!

Personally, I experience the greatest degree of pleasure in having contact with works of art. They furnish me with happy feelings of an intensity such as I cannot derive from other realms. - Albert Einstein
