Monster Patch

We are officially to the ages where pants don’t stand a chance in this house with two active boys. I am seeing more and more holes in the knees and knew something had to be done! After seeing some posts on Pinterest linking to here, I knew monster patches were exactly what those holes needed :)…Monster Patch @ whatilivefor.net

I loved how cute it turned out and how simple the patch was to do…just cut a red piece of fabric slightly larger than the hole. Cut some teeth out of white felt or other fabric and sew it to the top of the red patch so the teeth show. Place the patch on the inside of the leg with the teeth facing out and either sew it on or fuse it on using Heat N Bond or other similar products.

Cut two circles from white felt and two smaller circles from blue or other colored felt and hand stitch them above the “mouth” patch to make the eyes.

Now your kids’ knees won’t get cold and they’ll look super cute! Roar!!!Monster Patch @ whatilivefor.net

  1. What a cute idea! I just got rid of several pair of jeans due to holes...wish I saw this cute idea sooner! Of course, mine wouldn't have been as cute! (Thanks for the follow!)

  2. That is the cutest thing! I will have to pin it myself. I'm new to the world of boys and torn up clothes so this will come in handy I'm sure!

  3. Sooo cute! I keep meaning to this for my son's trousers... and then I forget. Great job.

    Thanks for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  4. That is awesome. I want one, lol.

  5. So adorable! I wonder if I can tweak this some for leggings. My daughter loves cotton pants but hates jeans. Her leggings tear so easily!
