Different Ways to Patch Jeans
There are many ways by which you can patch the jeans requiring different levels of expertise with the sewing machine and needles. The above-listed cute patched jeans ideas have specific tutorials using different styles of stitching and the amount of work required. If you are in love with an idea but do not want to go through the stitching process, you can use your own ways to implement those ideas on the jeans. Here is an overview of different ways you can patch jeans:
1. Using Sewing Machines
Sewing machines generally require you to open the seams of the jeans before you can start patching them. You need to be careful with it, but this definitely gives a very strong stitch, which does not tear out easily.
2. Hand Stitching
If you have a little bit of knowledge of working around with needles you can always hand stitch a patch on the jeans.
3. Glue Gun
Not a very durable patch, but this is the easiest way for patching up the jeans with no need for any sewing. It holds the patches well, but these might come out while washing, and require repatching many times.
4. Iron on Patch
Another easy but not so reliable way of patching jeans is an iron-on patch and it is very easy to work with them. These are readily available in the market and just need iron to patch them into the jeans.
