On Pinterest (of course) I found a pin where a mom made a monster mouth for a patch. "How clever!" I thought.
Here's how I did it:
First I washed and ironed the canvas.
|Trim the loose threads.|
|Clean up the hole.|
|Cut the canvas to the size for the hole leaving extra on all sides.|
|Cut the "teeth" to the width of the "tongue".|
|Stitch the teeth and tongue together (I used my sewing machine for this).|
|Pin the monster mouth into place|
|Hand-stitch the mouth to the jeans. I rolled the leg up so that I could get the back easier.|
|I think it's pretty cute! Uh, I mean handsome, awesome, cool!|
|I think Jo approves! |
At least they'll last through the winter!
Just to give you an update, Jordan already ripped through this patch! The jeans fell apart around the patch actually, so now I'm at a loss :(.
