A cute fix for a hole in the knee of jeans
I wish this was my original idea, but I found it on Pinterest. I did however, do things a little differently than the original. The original poster sewed hers on by hand, but when I patch a knee, I like to sew by machine (because it's faster, and I am lazy, lol), so I seam ripped open the leg to sew mine on the machine, and I, of course, used felted recycled wool.
Here is the before (not a very big hole, but it would have been quickly!) ...
Much cuter, eh?
If your little guy is not so little, and this is a bit too cute for your little man, I wrote a tutorial here for repairing holes with the "destroyed" look.
