My son loves stripy pants as much as I like stripy socks. You can see in this old post that he’s been sporting these trousers for almost a year and a half. After finally wearing a hole in them, we tried to talk him into cut-off shorts, but he didn’t like the idea of his favorite pants being cut, so I ended up making a patch. It’s very rough, but it works. I just cut a scrap of yellow canvas fabric and ironed it onto the pants with double sided fusible, then zig-zag stitched around the edge. Then he asked for a giraffe, so I drew one with some non-toxic paint pens. He’s pretty excited!
If any of you have patching tips, I’d love to hear your comments. I’m sure there’s a better way to treat the edge, and I’ve also seen some cool embroidery done on patches before. Happy patching!
