A Bit of Practical Sewing
Would you believe that the first thing I used from Ila's wonderful package of goodies was an old-fashion iron on patch for my jeans? (That's also what I thought would be the absolute last thing in the box I'd ever use!) The hole was big, so I took a piece of denim from a pair that was too far gone to save and put the patch behind that, then stitched around the frayed edge several times.
It's the first time I've patched my own jeans, but they fit and I really didn't want to shop for a replacement pair. And it's not like I'm headed anywhere classier than Walmart.
