My 7yr old dd keeps getting holes in the knees of her jeans. Ithink its just the cheap old navy jeans but... She wants me to applique something on the knees over the holes. I have put some of the iron on patch inside the pants where the hole is and was going to machine applique a heart on the outside over the hole. But, even with the arm adjusted on my machine I cant fit the leg of the jeans in to sew the patch on. Any advice? We arre now down to 1 pair of jeans without holes

Rip the inside seam of the leg open big enough to be able to sew the patch on flat. Then resew the seam up. Zigzag the raw edges if you don't have a serger.

I've been hand sewing patches on DD jeans.
