Today I decided to finish a project that I have been putting off for a while. I have a pair of jeans that had developed a hole at the corner of the right back pocket as well as were worn very thin between the thighs. I originally had two pairs of these. The other pair was converted to shorts in order to fix issues with them as well as to provide mending material for the remaining complete pair.
It seems that jeans are always a pain in the butt to mend. There was no good way to use the sewing machine for the hole by the pocket so it was sewn by hand. The thin spots I was able to use my handy-dandy little IKEA sewing machine.This endeavor is in line with my trying to not buy any clothes for the next year.
I am still using the cut-off legs from the first pair of pants that I turned into shorts. The photo above is what the three patches looked like from the inside. I am not a seamstress, but I haven’t had any problems so far with the repairs I’ve made previously. The repairs aren’t pretty but virtually unnoticeable from the outside.
