sewing and patching

Terry and his folks got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I've been wanting and needing one to mend various things, but mostly jeans. Prior to this I had been using my mom's sewing machine but towing along four kids and nap time schedules and school wasn't so convenient. Hence the gift!

So here's a post about patching jeans. I am so lame.

Evie's beloved skinny jeans got a hole in them.

After discovering that her jeans are too skinny to fit over my sewing arm, I took the hem out so it would fit over the arm.  

I had the idea of patching them with the back pocket of some other jeans that were beyond repair. They had really cute embroidered back pockets. 

It worked! The skinny jeans will live another three months and then be done forever. Was it worth it? I'm not sure.  

But I think it's cute.

  1. That is cute! Perhaps you can give me some lessons the sewing machine my mom gave me...it's an oldy...but should be able to do the trick. ;)
