DIY Kids Knee Patch

Pin It

My daughter loves leggings.  She does not enjoy wearing jeans or tights.  She wears skirts but usually wears leggings under the skirts.  When we got to the point where 4 pairs of leggings had holes, I knew I had to do something.  I wasn’t just going to keep buying leggings for her to get more holes in.  Instead we patched them up with some fun shapes.  So far we have two hearts, a star and a flower.  I also just found another pair of leggings in her drawer with a hole as well so we may be throwing another shape into the mix.

The leggings in the picture above are a little stretched out because she was wearing them before we fixed them.  Anywho…This is a simple repair to do.  I first hand sewed up the holes to keep them from getting bigger.  Then I cut the shapes out of some old shirts that I had.  Pin them over the hole and sew them on using a straight stitch.  They all turned out so cute! I only have a pic of the heart one but they are all equally adorable.  Plus I love that it is only on one knee.  How cute will this be to wear for Valentine’s Day!
