First attempt at visible mending. Still have one more knee and the butt to do. Tried to keep it pretty simple. I still don’t really know what I’m doing when it comes to sewing, but slowly learning.

I think I pulled the thread too tighy because of all the puckering. It looks fine when they are on though.

The instructions I followed did not say to fold the edges of the patch, so I didn’t. Kind of concerned about fraying though. Will try folding with the other knee and see how that goes.

A close up of a pair of faded black jeans. Both knees have holes. The knee on the right has an interior patch with lots of rows of stitching.
