Yes. Yes, Those Are Patches On My Pants.

Teo was given pants from his cousin that were in great shape except for the knees. What to do? What to do? Well, if I had to patch them by golly they were going to be some "look-at-my-patches" patches!
I had lots of scraps with fusible web on the back so I started with basic shapes and then dragged out the cookie cutters.  Fused the cutouts where I wanted them on the patches then machine stitched them to prevent fraying and peeling off.  Followed by fusing the whole patch to the pants.  Embroidered along the sides, cause it's harder than hard to machine sew, and used different colored floss.  Teo likes them since they're fun and I'm happy to have saved 3 pairs of jeans.  I tell you what though, embroidering through denim was no picnic...my fingers are still a bit upset with my creative twist on patches.
