Well, hey there, It's your girl, P.W., giving you the know how on the how-to for fashion. And on today's episode, we're going to be talking about how do you sew a patch onto your denim jeans. Now remember, there are two types of patches. There is a cosmetic patch; a patch that you just actually need because your jeans are busted and disgusted or an aesthetic patch; a patch that you just want to put on and give it a little jazz to really spice up your jeans. So, let me show you how to do it both ways. Now, the first kind of patch that we're going to do with this one is going to be a cosmetic patch. Okay. When you have a hole in your jean, maybe you bought a sample jean at a really great, you know, price and for whatever reason that you have, there's hole in your jean. I know this is odd, but, we're going to show you how to hook it up. So, some people will automatically just throw it on top. Okay. That's not really my deal. Okay. We want to find a fabrication that looks really really close to this. So, I took this off of another pair of jeans and I want to put it behind. So, I want to flip my jeans inside out and I want to put it behind. Okay. And then, once I sew, that's what it's going to look like. You see like nothing really ever happened and it's not going to be that noticeable because also, I found a type of denim that matches. You see how this has a snub in it. That white is called a snub. So, and then, you want to find something that has the same kind of snub in it. So, we're going to turn them around inside out there and then, we're going to go, we're going to sew. Because this is a cosmetic patch, we're going to use the same color thread. So, I have my blue thread and I'm just going to prick in and out 'cause you don't want to leave too many marks. You just want to go in and out and I'm just doing, if you have a sewing machine at home, that's great. Then you can use your sewing machine. But for the most part, you just want to blind stitch nice and easy, nice and easy. Simple things all the way around, it's not really hard. Just hook it up and keep going around. If you want it to fry, you do it a little further out; if you want it dead on, then put it right there. Okay. Let me show the next way. Okay. Now, the second patch we want to do is an aesthetic patch, something that just makes it look better. You might just want to do something funky. I, I already did this one as you can see. I stitch it on my sewing machine. I kind of made it look like a pocket, I stitch it down just to make it look funky because I wanted to do something, you know, fun with it. Now, when you're doing an aesthetic patch, you don't want it to do in the same color as the actual fabrication. So, we want to stick our hand inside; you see that right there of the leg and we want to sew. We want to go, push it inside; now, if you find another pocket off a jean 'cause you don't know how to stitch it down, that's fine too. That is quite alright. That's not a big deal. But, we want to get it through there and we want to begin our sewing process. Now, with this one, you can kind of get funky with your stitch pricks. You see that leg, you can kind of just get fun with it and do all sorts of other things because you had discolored threads. So, there are your two ways, your cosmetic because you have to have it and your aesthetic because you just want it. So, it's your girl, P.W., signing off on how-to. I'll see you next time.
