The other day as I was flipping through my Google Next thing, my daughter happen to walk by at the same time that this post from Pleated Poppy about Patches popped up – I said “we should do that to your jeans” and she agreed. And it was a snow day and we had nothing going on, so we just did it right then.
It was so quick to just sit down and do it – I should actually accomplish things like this more often! I also should take before pictures – I didn’t, but I dug up this from Christmas Eve – sportin’ the hole look in a different pair (she’s in the middle of the gang):
I let her pick the fabric, cut the shape, color of thread (I didn’t have embroidery floss so I just doubled up some thread) and voila – done! Now, on to all the other holes that need repaired….
Patching the holes was really easy – go try it!

How fun!! I bet she has all the coolest pants at school now!
Super Sweet! I love repurposing worn out clothes. 🙂 Following from Tater Tots and Jello. I didn’t link up because there was soooo much already. Hope you come by to visit.
great idea-my daughter just ripped the knee of her jeans and i put them in my scrap pile-have to take them out now and fix them up-perfect for valentine’s day!!
So cute! To bad my boys wouldn’t go for it. =^)

These are so cute! I bet my girls would love this.
Love this! My daughter and I decorated jeans a few years ago but we haven’t done it since. Maybe an upcoming project 🙂
