Introduction: Sew Up Hole in Jeans

sew up that nasty hole in your favorite jeans without an iron on patch.

Step 1: Step One

The hole in these jeans are at the knee, to fit them onto the sewing machine you need to flip them inside out and take out the outside seam. but just enough to fit it on your machine with a little wiggle room to sew.

Step 2: Step Two

Now to start sewing, basically you go forward and backwards to make a zigzag effect rotating the jeans just a little after each line, so you move across the hole, rather then staying in the same spot.

I used white thread and did little lines, you can make them longer or use a different color for a stylish effect.

Step 3: Step Three

Now that you have your hole all sewn up its time to sew up the hole you had to make to fix them. just line the edges of the fabric up together "they should go together pretty good because they have a crease from where the thread used to be" and just sew them up where the seam was before.
and there you have it, no more hole.

    aw man thats bad, sorry that your pants riped. you can try and do this to a bigger hole like yours, unless its a crazy shape and would be too much work.

    Haha, nice 'ible, though I published This and hour or so before you, I probably should have done it your way... However look at the pics, the jeans are even similar weight and whatnot...

    Also for the macro pics: Good job getting bright close-ups, people usually fall down on this point, as a pointer try using a baby tripod or resting both your arms on solid object to help with blurring, it's annoying when the thing's sitting in your lap but it can be done...

    Thanks, it's always annoying to get good macros on stuff like this, they don't reflect enough light...

    ive heard about using baby tripods before... but mine will never stay still long enough. the little buggers always throw up or fall down or something. any suggestions?

    Well I have a fairly hefty creative compact, an olympus Sp-560UZ and I have great results with the gorilla pod, just the baby one, granted most of the time I just put a solid object under my hand holding the camera and that works nicely...
