My oldest son, Mr. R, has several pairs of pants. I don’t know how he managed to do it but every single pair got a hole in them in the same week. Since it was the middle of winter and it didn’t make any sense to turn them into shorts, I decided to patch them all up.
Some of these holes were crazy! This is what I get for not keeping on top of fixing patches early on.
I had a lot of fun coming up with creative patches for these pants. They’re all different and each one has a little personality. But you know what happened? Almost every single one of these pants got a new hole in them shortly after he started wearing them again! My beautiful creations were ruined just like that. I don’t want the same thing to happen to you, so I am sharing with you my lessons learned of what not to do when patching jeans.
