Patches? Yeah, You Need Some Stinkin’ Patches!

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).
Thread.
Scissors.
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.
