Denim Flower Patch

I bought some pants for super cheap from Target last year, but they came with holes in the knees. The holes have only gotten bigger and started looking ridiculous, so I used denim scraps from other jeans to make flower patches on the knee. I think it turned out pretty darn cute if I say so myself…Denim Flower Patch for holey knees

Here’s how I did it:

  1. I printed out a flower I liked and traced it onto Wonder Under.
  2. I then (following the instructions on the packaging) bonded the Wonder Under to some scrap denim and cut out the flowers and flower centers.
  3. I removed the paper backing and ironed the flowers over the holes (I put paper in the pant leg so I wouldn’t bond the pants shut). And then I bonded the flower center to the flowers.
  4. I took thread and hand sewed the flowers to the pants so they wouldn’t fall off. The edges have frayed over time and look super cute. I used back stitch.

It took a little time, but they look so much nicer than a traditional square patch and these pants should last me quite a while longer! This would be super cute on jeans for little girls, especially if they wear holes in the knees faster than should seem humanly possible :).


  1. Super cute. I may have you come over and do mine. ;)

  2. Love it and clever way to create some designer jeans
