Yep, but mending patches in this area feel very uncomfy (mho) since they attract focus.I tend to add artificial ones down the legs and the bottom with same 'patch-work' then, to aid my 'self esteem'Even the inside patches added somewhere outside will 'tie' the job a bit better into 'new/different fashion' instead of 'rescue-job' only - mho.LG, GerlindeIiiijaaa, even ever cheeky me is not always 'un-rock-able' :-o + ;-) !)
These are actually quite comfortable and they don't show unless I bend way over. I'd love to see a version of what you are doing.
Way to extend the life of those jeans! My husband gets a lot of wear in this area as he cycles and even just biking around town he'll wear his jeans. I've done a few patch jobs there and he's eeked out several more wears before they start falling apart everywhere! Make do and mend :)Andrea EOD
Nice fix. The patches look soft and not too bulky. Great idea! Thanks.
Thank you! The color match between the patches and the pants look much closer in person.
I patch "mend" jeans all the time. Usually I mend them from the inside.... and use a similar thread stitching in the same direction as the grain of the fabric. most of the time the patch doesn't even show. I use (like you) fabric from old recycled jeans. More wear time works out just great!
Clever sitching with the grain!
