Mending for Mudder

My mother wanted me to mend a hole in a pair of her jeans when she was here for Christmas, but I never got around to it until the other day.  I really don't know how to mend jeans.  Well, except for adding a fun patch to the outside and she did not want that.  Ugh.

So I took some blue fabric and used some of that double sided fusible stuff.  I fused it to the inside of the jeans and then  went bonkers with some zigzag stitches on the outside to take down all the stringy hole parts, like so:
And this is what it looked like on the inside:
Mom, you'll have to let me know how this holds up and I'm sorry if this is not what you had in mind.

  1. Thank you daughter for fixing those comfy jeans. Perfect. HOWEVER, the jar of your canned sweet gherkins was the best. Maybe next year you'll do bread 'n butter which are my favorite. Wink Wink.
