Did a hole in your jeans rip bigger than you wanted it to?

Sew the rip closed loosely using a needle and thread. Use an iron-on patch to mend the new rip and keep it from tearing further. Make sure you iron the patch on the inside of your garment.

Ripped your belt loop while putting on your jeans?

Simply cut an iron-on patch down to about double the size of the hole and iron it on. Using a needle and thread, sew the belt loop back in place for extra reinforcement so the belt loop can be even stronger than it was before.

Wore down the inner thigh of your jeans to the point where they’re ripping?

With the jeans inside out, iron a patch onto the inner thigh. Turn the jeans right side out and use a sewing machine to sew back and forth along the vertical threads.
