If your kids are anything like mine, you probably have a lot of pants come through your washing machine with ripped out knees. Here’s a creative way to patch them up, courtesy of Family Fun Magazine!
The tutorial in the magazine had you use white felt for the eyes, but we used buttons instead, mostly because it was 1 a.m. and we were ready to be done with this project! We did it as a surprise for Seahawk – he’s much harder on his pants than Munchkin, which is only compounded by the fact that when we were buying them, Target only one pair in his size. He was dubious at first, but loves his Monster Patch now. Oh, and lest you think I’m the only crafty one in the family, that’s hubby’s hand doing the sewing :).
What’s your favorite way to patch a hole? Let me know in the comments!
Oh my goodness, YES! My sons get holes in their jeans within ONE month! It’s so frustrating. This is such a cute way to patch them up!
Mine too! It’s crazy frustrating – especially since hubby insists on buying then new, lol.
