Grace did a meme-thingy a while back where she was supposed to say “something random” about me. She said, “Nobody else is as good at patching jeans!”
So today when I set about to start patching a pair for her, I thought, maybe I should do a tutorial on my apparently superior method for patching jeans. I’ll let you be the judge of whether it’s anything truly special.
What you’ll need:
Jeans with a hole in them.
Sewing machine, preferably with a zigzag stitch.
Heavy needle (14 or 16).
Jeans that you’ve gotten tired of patching, so you can cut them up to make more patches, or other source of jean-weight denim.
Do not trim away the loose threads from the hole.
