Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Kris @ "Resweater" wrote up this tutorial and dedicated it to everyone with little boys. She recently got a new sewing machine, a Baby Lock BL9, and was trying out some of the cool features on it. Kris used a piece of felted cashmere to patch her little boys jeans.

We do a lot of patching jeans at the alterations shop I work out of . We recycle a lot of denim from hems, etc. Our process is to match the jean color, cut out a shape square, rectangle then serge the edges of the cut shape, place it on the wrong side of the jean where the patch is needed. Sew around the edges of the patch to secure it in place then Zig zag or straight stitch using your reverse to go back and forth with in the the shape. We try to match the thread closest to the denim color. It comes out quite nicely and sturdy.
