Fix those jeans

This is the way I have found to be the fastest, easiest, cutest way to patch jeans and you don't even have to use a straight pin!

Follow the steps below, and you'll have a new pair of pants in no time!

1. Cut a patch out of some old jeans that are in your Goodwill pile. (I use an old pair of my husbands) Make sure the patch is wider and taller than the hole by about 2.5" - 3" on the top and bottom.

2. Turn the holy jeans inside-out. We will be patching the underside of the jeans, not on the outside where it's visible. Line the outside of the patch with iron-on tape. (You can get this at most craft stores.) Put the tape in between the patch and the jeans and then using a very hot iron, "glue" the patch to the jeans.

3. Now slide the pant leg onto your sewing machine and get it oriented any way you can. Just make sure you are only sewing through one side of the jeans and not two. Then begin sewing down the patch in a zig zag pattern. Make sure you sew past the hole so it's nice and secure.

4. There...you're done! Wasn't that easy. Now stand back and admire your work because you just saved yourself $20+ and a trip to the store. Plus the end result is kind of cute don't you think?
