How to Properly Repair Holes in Jeans

I tend to make a short story, long so I'll keep this one simple.  I have a little boy that I like to call Sun.  He is one of my everythings.  He is also a very active little boy.  His favorite activities involve skinned knees and holes.  So recently I was cruising the NET and came across a picture of this.  It's in another language but it's easy to figure out.  I found it so adorable!  I had to make it.  It was so easy to do.  Here's how. 

Isn't this the cutest?!

Step 1- Find a pair of jeans that has a hole in it.  If you have a boy then you probably have a closet full. 

Step 2- Cut your felt.  You will need red and white.  Use the white to make two circles, one bigger than the other and then cut some teeth.  Make sure they fit in the hole.  Cut an oval slightly bigger than the hole you need to repair.  This will be the inside of the mouth.


Step 3- Place the teeth over the red felt and quickly stitch them together.  Place this on the inside of the hole and stitch around it with some black embroidery floss.

Step 4- Attach the eyes and use the embroidery floss to create a "look".

Step 5- Sit back with some iced tea because you're done.


Funny story: My sun wore these and the monster came back with green teeth!  They were grass stains!  It just added to the "look".

  3. Oh my gosh- what a great idea! I have one question for you- does the felt hold up in the washing machine? I've always thought that felt wasn't washable, but I'm probably wrong! Thanks!

  4. Hi sewing chick. Yes the felt does hold up. At least in my case it has. This felt held up through grass stains ( monster teeth are slightly green now) and through three machine washes so far. I have a front loader. I don't know if it's gentler but I suppose you could hand wash them if you wanted. Good luck.

  5. I LOVE this!! My boy can't keep a knee in his jeans worth anything, so I most definitely have several pairs of pants that could use some fixing up like this. Thanks for the brilliant idea!

  6. My boy has surprisingly hole free jeans (most likely because he grows out of them before he can wear them out). So, I am going to be doing this to my jeans. Thank you!

  7. They are so cute. My nephew would love this. Too bad none of his jeans have holes.
