Patched!

The other day as I was flipping through my Google Next thing, my daughter happen to walk by at the same time that this post from Pleated Poppy about Patches popped up - I said "we should do that to your jeans" and she agreed.  And it was a snow day and we had nothing going on, so we just did it right then. 

It was so quick to just sit down and do it - I should actually accomplish things like this more often!  I also should take before pictures - I didn't, but I dug up this from Christmas Eve - sportin' the hole look in a different pair (she's in the middle of the gang):
I let her pick the fabric, cut the shape, color of thread (I didn't have embroidery floss so I just doubled up some thread) and voila - done!  Now, on to all the other holes that need repaired....
Patching the holes was really easy - go try it!

So cute! To bad my boys wouldn't go for it. =^)

Love this! My daughter and I decorated jeans a few years ago but we haven't done it since. Maybe an upcoming project :)
