Inleiding

Patch your jeans with a reverse applique. This technique is great for holes that have a large chunk of cloth missing. You can cut any shape and use any color fabric for the patch, so long as it is heavy-weight fabric.

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

  1. Examine the damage. Clip any long threads, and remove any debris from the hole.

    • Slide the pant leg with the patch over the arm of the sewing machine.

    • You may need to remove the sewing machine table for the pant to fit over the sewing machine.

    • If you are still having trouble getting the pant around the arm of the sewing machine, you can rip the side seam of the pant leg to allow room to sew.

    • Be sure that the pant leg is around the arm, and that you are not accidentally sewing the two layers of the pant leg together.

    • Adjust the sewing machine for a zig-zag stitch.

    • Set the stitch length to just under 1/2.

    • Align the edge of the patch with the center of the pressor foot.

    • Be sure that the patch is laying flat.

    • Lower the pressor foot.

    • Begin sewing the zig-zag stitch, following the edge of the hole so that the zig-zag stitch covers the area where the two fabrics meet.

    • Sew all the way around the patch.

    • Overlap the stitching at the end with the first two or three stitches.

To keep the pattern from entirely fraying or catching on things, it may also help to flip the pants right-side-out and sew again around the pattern edge with the zigzag or a flat stitch.
