Repairing broken pants and making them wearable again
Children romp, play outside and climb trees. Before you know it they have broken pants and there is a hole in them again. To not have to buy new pants every time and not let them go to school with holes in their pants, you can cover the holes in the pants with samples!
Broken pants ask for samples
Now you don’t want to fix the standard apples on the broken pants. Although I must say; ‘there are lots of cute appliques you can use these days.’ Then you can choose to get behind the sewing machine and make a monster yourself where the hole is in your son or daughter’s clothes.
Getting started with the sewing machine
Do you like to be creative, make your own clothes or repair these broken pants yourself, maybe making these monsters on the knees is also something for you.
What do you need to make these monsters:
- Broken pants
- sewing machine
- head pins
How to make these broken pants whole again?
It is actually very easy. Cut out the felt, slightly larger than the hole. First make eyes on this and if you are even more creative you might be able to do a lot more fun with this, think of a mouth and nose.
And attach these around the hole in the pants.
When I started making these broken garments I hadn’t used my sewing machine in a long time. I found that I really had to get used to them again and maybe they don’t deserve a beauty prize, the holes are gone and the pants are cool.
