In this tutorial I’ll show you how I mended an old ripped jeans in the crotch area.
How To Mend Your Jeans – In The Crotch Area!
- ripped jeans
- old, thin denim fabric (old jeans)
- sewing thread
- sewing machine
For the mend you can either use brown thread or blue thread. Brown thread is often used for jeans seams. But blue thread helps to make the mend less noticeable.
Cut off a patch from an old jeans: It’s best to use thin denim fabric (without holes) so that the patched area won’t be too bulky.
Mend The Jeans
Pin the patch in place behind the ripped area.
Now sew back and forth across the rip with straight stitches.
Continue to sew back and forth in a zig zag pattern. You can leave the mend like that or …
… turn the jeans 90 degrees and sew back and forth across the first stitches.
Now turn the jeans inside out and cut off the excess fabric close to the stitching.
After mending the jeans, I refashioned it into capri pants.
