Heal jeans with a monster mouth patch #Style & Grooming#clothes#crafts#monsters#repairs#sewing May 29 | Guest post by Lauren How about turning a hole in the knee into a monster mouth? I decided to patch my partner's jeans this way after spying this great idea on a social networking site. Here's my version of the monster-mouth knee-patch. From a distance, the patch doesn't necessarily stand out. When the jeans move, the mouth opens and closes slightly. This is such a fun way to patch a hole in the knee. I'm so proud to see David walking around wearing my handiwork, and it makes me giggle every time! In sewing the patch, I chose heavy-duty red corduroy for the main patch. The teeth and eyes are sewn with white wool felt — this doesn't fray and is easy to cut into the right shapes. The blacks of the eyes are black vinyl that I found laying around, though I would have ideally chosen wool felt as well. The monster-mouth knee-patch was completed in one evening with only hand-sewing necessary. It's an easy project for the not-particularly-crafty (like me!) and is highly recommended for the positive feedback it attracts!
