My DS is 7 and in first grade. Holy Moly he has blown out the knees in his pants. I guess I thought I was always seeing the same pair of jeans with a hole in the knee but it turns out it’s 4 or more different pairs. Ugh!
These are all new pants we bought at the beginning of the school year. We didn’t have this problem before… must be the rough playing at recess. The holes are huge and only on the left knee, but the right knees are really worn and could tear anytime.
Next year I will put iron on patches on the inside of the knees to be proactive. Good idea?
How can I mend these jeans so they wont tear more and they look ok, even fun?
I found this blog with a cute way to mend knees but it uses a flower motif. Any ideas for a easy boys motif? Especially for a huge tear.
I also read maybe it was cool to patch the inside of the knee but leave some of fraid edges exposed on the outside… for that tough guy look.
Thanks for any advice!
