One of the most frequent requests I get from the Gentleman is to fix holes in jeans. He’s the type of guy who picks his favorites and wears them over and over until they are threadbare. In this tutorial I will show you step by step basic instructions for mending holes in denim with a “hidden patch” – this means the patch is on the inside of the garment. The technique I am about to show you is a little more forgiving when done on darker denim, but visually its easier to show you on a lighter denim so you can see whats going on.
Materials You Will Need are:
- Sewing Machine
- Thread that closest matches color of jeans – here I used a thread that has a color variant specifically for denim.
- Scrap denim or other scrap fabric that closely matches jean color
- Fusible Interfacing – Optional
- Iron and Ironing board
