If you are a parent, you know the frustration of the knee hole. Kids grow out of clothes so quickly, it seems like you are replacing entire wardrobes twice a year. When a knee blows out of a pair of jeans that are otherwise in perfectly good shape, it’s aggravating. With a few simple sewing skills, you can sew a heart patch onto jeans to fix the hole and make them even cuter!
Thankfully, you only need very basic sewing skills to patch up a hole like this. Trust me. If I can manage it, anyone can.
To fix my daughter’s jeans, I used:
I ran a bead of fabric glue around the perimeter of the hole before adding the patch. This is an optional step, but it helps to make sure the patch stays in place. And with my sub-par sewing skills, I can use all the help I can get.
