Many jeans today come pre-cut with holes all over the place. The original look of these types of jeans is very trendy, but what happens when the hole begins to get larger and you want to maintain the look without a gapping hole in your jeans.If you do not like your skin showing through or would like to add additional accents. Our Iron Patches applique adhesive is a great solution. If the tear or hole is small a scrap pair of denim works great to prevent the hole from getting larger.
If you are using a piece of denim to prevent the hole from getting larger, apply the adhesive on the top side of the fabric so that the cotton is against your skin. Make contours on the edges of the patch to make the appearance on the outside of the jean to look less rigid as shown below.
Application Instruction for patching worn areas or tears:
1. Use our Backing Patches
2. Preheat your iron for 3 – 5 minutes on the highest setting without steam
3. Begin by determining the areas that you would like to repair. If you are repairing a hole in a pair of jeans, check-out our articles on repairing holes
4. Measure the tear that you are trying to fix. Take a piece of denim backing patch (these patches are different because the adhesive is on the top side of the jean material and the cotton side is exposed to provide additional comfort). Cut the backing patch about an inch wider than the tear on all sides.
5. With the front side of the jeans facing you, place the patch through the tear. Make sure the patch is centered within the tear.
6. Line-up the tear so that the jeans look straight.
7. Begin ironing one side of the tear and then re-straighten the tear to make sure it is a nice neat repair and then iron the other side.
8. Now that the patch is temporarily in place, turn the jeans inside out (be careful because the jeans will now be very hot!) Finish by ironing the backside of the jeans for 45 to 60 second while applying pressure to the patch.
9. Turn the jeans so the front side is facing you and trim any excess treads and now your jeans are repaired
