This Instructable was inspired by the lovely Ellen's post on gurus about How to save a favourite pair of trousers.
The knees are always the first bit to go on kids pants - and it's a similar situation with the elbows on shirts.
This project provides a fun and easy way to add knee or elbow patches to your kids clothes. They'll provide protection for both your kid's knees and the clothes. Sugru is ideal for this project because:
It's really flexible
It can survive rough and tumble due to its hard wearing properties
It's waterproof - so no more muddy knees! (It's also machine washable)
It's available in colours that can be mixed, whether you want your patch to blend in or stand out!
If you need to stock up on sugru, you can buy it here
and also from the Instructables store.
This project is a great one for the kids too - they can help think of colours and designs to put on the patches.
So lets get started!
