American Eagle jeans are my absolute favorite brand of jeans. They are so soft and comfy!
My jeans originally came with a couple of holes, but they had "strings" across the opening and weren't gaping open. Then one day I looked down to see an unshaven leg patch hanging out of the gaping hole in my jeans, it was then that I decided it needed to be patched.
Perfect timing because my sewing machine was ready to go! I grabbed a fabric scrap and made sure that it fit behind the hole:
Pinned it in place:
Turned my jeans inside out:
Double-checked the placement:
Trimmed away the excess fabric:
Unpinned the patch:
Adhered double-sided, washable, non-sticky-for-the-sewing-machine tape, made by Stitch Witchery:
Reapplied the patch:
Flipped my pants back to right-side-out:
Used a light blue thread and sewed across the patch in zig-zag stiches, making sure to sew past the patch and onto the denim:
I can wear my favorite jeans again!
I think I'm liking this whole new world of sewing!
