Crochet Patches

Here is a recent project of mine.

before-after-FINAL

As you can see from the ‘before’ picture these jeans were destined for the trash. But instead I decided to crochet some patches for these holey jeans! I must say I’m very happy with the results. Here is a photo tutorial on my process.

Step 1: Work up your pattern.

I chose a granny square for my left knee and a blanket stitch for my right knee.  Both in coordinating bright colors.

STEP1

Step 2: Pin it

Place your crochet piece on the inside of your jeans while you pin it in place.  I suggest wearing your jeans while you do this to make sure your patch fits properly and doesn’t stretch when you wear them. Just be careful not to poke yourself!

Step 3: Sew it

Once your patch is in place it’s ready to be sewed on. Choose a thread that is close to the color of your jeans and use a small stitch all the way around.

That’s it!

Now you have a “new” pair of jeans with crochet patches that are sure to get you lots of compliments!
