If, like me, you love to keep your jeans for as long as possible you will know that you have to deal with the inevitable wear and holes, which is why I have decided to run up a bit of a how to darn jeans video tutorial.
I have been darning my jeans for some time now – mainly because I used to wear a Crumpler bumbag which is made out of the strongest material I have ever known which inevitably left me with holes where it rubbed. I love doing a bit of hand darning and think it looks a lot prettier than just running it up on the machine – plus it saves getting the sewing machine out anyway.
I mainly get holes in the back pocket of my jeans because I hold my keys there attached to a macrame chain (so that I don’t lose them!) You can find out more about my ‘fashion sense’ in my OOTD posts!) There are also other wear points that develop from where bags rub and from the ‘worn look’ that a lot of jeans seem to come with.
How to darn jeans | Video Tutorial
In this tutorial I am going to show you how to darn the hole in a pocket to make it strong and keep it from wearing again so quickly.
You will need:
Some coloured embroidery thread
A medium needle with a large eye
Some basic sewing experience
It is the first real video that I have done for Susty’s so be kind! 😉
I hope that you have found this to be helpful! Would you like to see some more video tutorials on the blog? Let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
Let’s get making do and mending!
