Today, I am going to share with you how to update a pair of jeans with patches. I needed a way to revamp my favorite pair of comfy jeans after getting paint on them. I have been obsessing over patched jeans the past couple of months, and figured this would be the perfect way to cover up the paint spots, while keeping them looking cute! Check out the full tutorial below.
Supplies: Jeans, fabric, pen, ruler, permanent fabric glue, pins and needle, thread, scissors, sewing machine (not pictured.)
Step 4: Even though you used permanent fabric glue I recommend doing some top stitching on the patches. I stitched along all of the edges of my patches, but the main areas I would suggest for you to stitch down are along any stress points. These would be areas like your knees and thighs, because that's where you put the most stress on the jeans when you bend and move. Once you've done your stitching, press with a warm iron.
As you can imagine the possibilities with this DIY are endless! Plus, I feel like patches work for any season and are pretty much timeless, don't you think?
