Update any old jeans with plaid patterns! Materials: - Jeans - Fabric Scissors - Plaid Flannel Scraps - Iron - Fusible Webbing Tape Instructions: 1) If you haven't already, cut the flannel scraps into squares and rectangles. For best results, cut each remnant no more than 4.5 inches (11.43 centimeters) wide and 5.5 inches (13.97 centimeters) in height. It's okay to mix up the size range. 2) Determine the placement of each remnant. I focused on the general knee area. 3) Cut a strip of fusible webbing for each side of the rectangle/square. 4) Place the first strip of fusible webbing tape in between the flannel and jeans. 5) Firmly apply the iron to the jeans, using the Cotton setting and a flat, hard surface such as an ironing board. 6) Repeat with the remaining fabric remnants. Overlap here and there to let the different plaid prints contrast with each other. Repeat on the other leg. Let fabric cool and you're done!
I'm going to try this with so many different kinds of fabric!!
I've definitely done these with rips before: like @techatheart said I used to think you had to sew them on and was soooo relieved when i found out you didn't have to!
this is really cool, and it seems like a good way to fix jeans with rips in them!
This is easier than I thought! I thought you had to sew on.
Super cute! I love patching up old jeans :)
