C.R.A.F.T. #43: Patch jeans

I was inspired to patch my own jeans after getting a pair of holy jeans back from the dry cleaner while living in Beijing, China. The funniest part, I did not even asked to have them patched! I really liked the look of the patch, and started patching my own pants in the same fashion.

 I really think the patch adds a little spunk to the jeans! Here is a closeup…

My jeans were sew much fun to patch…just zig zag the stitch all over the patch of old denim. I don’t know about you, but my iron on patches occasionally fall off, the zig zag stays forever! I am very happy to have my favorite jeans back in working order! Oh and here is an easy way to patch a whole in the knee!

  1. They look cute. Back in the day I used to do this to my cutoffs & jeans then embroider lazy daisy stitch flowers over the stitches. They looked very cool and I got alot of compliments. Way back in the day? Think sixties and seventies.

  2. Great patch! Definitely adds a fun detail to the jeans! Stop by and link up to Make It Wear It again this week if you want!

  3. I have never thought about sewing over the patch like that, very cute and fits right in with the worn jean look. Thanks for linking up!

  4. So great! And timely! I just got a hole in my favorite pair. It's in a spot that can't be pulled off as intentional so I think I'll try this. Or actually, I'll ask the tailor to try this because I don't actually sew…yet:)

  5. Cute idea! Thanks for linking up to Hoo's got talent!
