Jeans are amongst the most loved casual attire. One little trivia about jeans is that once you have managed to establish a comfort level with a pair of jeans, you would continue to wear it despite of it fading or developing a hole. Once faded, you can use a pair of jeans as new, saying faded jeans are in. However, this correlation between you and your jeans can be intervened just by a small hole. In fact, most of us have faced the problem of having a hole in the particular pair of jeans that we are most comfortable in. A hole in your jeans could earlier mean abandoning it forever, but not so anymore. You can retort to ways to repair a hole in your jeans. Read on further on how to patch up jeans hole.
How to Fix a Hole in My Jeans
- Straight Pins
- Iron-on Patch
- Rush to a fabric store to get an iron-on patch for the hole. Look for a patch that is at least ½ inch larger than the hole.
- Put the patch over the hole and pin it.
- Now, follow the instructions on the package. Follow them to iron the iron patch on the jeans. Do it carefully, so that there is no room for error.
- Just ironing a patch won’t do the trick. It requires a little more effort to rehash your good old pair of jeans to come out in a new look.
- To reinforce the patch, fold the jeans level with one edge of the patch and whipstitch the edge of the patch to the jeans, making about 10 stitches per inch.
- Pull the needle up through both layers of fabric, the jeans and the patch, with the needle at a slant that is just a few threads from the edge.
- Loop the needle over the top of the edge, to the back side of the jeans.
- When you reach the edge of the side, refold the jeans and continue to sew, until you complete all the three sides.
- When all the three sides are done, tie the end with a knot and cut out the extra thread. Your good old jeans are back with a punch!! Get going!!
