Over time clothes wear out, some wear out in particular places quicker than others. This pair of favourite jeans had a hole in the crotch area so I put the repair of it on my list.
I used some denim from my scrap denim bundle and used embroidery thread to stitch and reinforce.
I then discovered that the other side was pretty thin too so I did the same there this time using Aurifil 28 weight (4669) Stonewash Blue which blends well with the denim.
I felt like I was on a bit of a roll so I decided to tackle Tobit’s Community Clothing jeans which had been damaged in a cycling accident last year.
I found some denim that was a good match to go behind and trim the damage. I pulled out my Gutermann topstitch thread that I use for denim; it’s that gorgeous gold often used on jeans. I sewed a blanket stitch around the hole and then embroidered the rest randomly.
I really enjoyed these repairs and have had other pairs of jeans that have had the same treatment.
