If you have boys...

...then you need this tutorial!

If I ever manage to get caught up with the house cleaning and changing out the kids clothes to spring and summer wardrobes, I have a stack of jeans with holes in the knees to take out to my sewing machine. My sewing machine, as I have mentioned previously on this blog, sits gathering dust most of the time, waiting for me to learn how to use it.

Anyway, this is the best step-by-step tutorial I've seen on what to do about holey knees, other than making cut-offs or using those iron-on patches that peel off after a wash or two.


  1. WOW! that is a nice technique! I almost quit reading when she said to rip out the seam..AS IF!...but I may try this--not as easy as when the last child outgrows them just as the hole gets too big to ignore--THAT is sweet victory!

  2. I use that technique with my ironing, Dandelionmom...if I let it sit long enough, some of it becomes outgrown, or at least out-of-season and can be ignored for months!

  3. Thank you, Constance, for the tutorial and for stopping by my blog!
