Although denim is one of the most durable fabrics a girl can get, it's still susceptible to everyday wear and tear. Any stylista can take a fall and cause a tear, or wear her jeans so often that they begin to show threadbare patches. Since a pair of fashionable jeans that fit can be a nuisance to find, you'll want to extend the life of these favorites for as long as you can. Get your worn-out jeans looking good as new by patching up those old denim bald spots and holes.
Turn your jeans inside out and measure the size of the hole or threadbare area.
Cut a piece of fusible interfacing that is 2 inches larger than the area all the way around.
Lay the interfacing over the hole area, covering all threadbare areas.
Iron the interfacing until it fuses to your jeans.
Turn the jeans right side out. Choose a thread that matches your jeans' color and stitch back and forth over the jeans, filling in the hole.
To prevent any glue from the interfacing from getting on your ironing board, you can place a piece of scrap cloth underneath the hole in your jeans.
Do not use a regular-weight sewing machine needle. Use a heavyweight needle so that the thick denim does not break it.
