How to patch a hole in pants



Max came to me one day, "Mama there are holes in my pants. Can you fix it?"
I love making things with my sewing machine but 50% of the time I use it for shortening pants, re-purposing, or patching holes like this.


First: Choose a fabric for the patch and cut in square:


Fold in the sides about 3/8 inch and iron


Pin the patch in place


Open the sewing machine's compartment:


Slip in the pants to the machine


Sew the patch to the pants


Done!


The pants with holes now becomes his favorite pants. Woohoo!
