My nephew loves his ‘new’ hand-me-down Iron Man pajamas. He even has the moves to prove it. He didn’t, however, like the holes in the knees, so I took the bottoms home to fix. I’ll show you how to do it. It is super easy.
Yep, those knees are long gone. If I was a little boy and had holey pajamas I would probably get caught on those holes while getting dressed.
Oh, look! It’s a New Moon shirt given to my hubbie on a date a few years back to see the aforementioned movie, which he detests. So of course he doesn’t wear this…but I didn’t throw it away because I knew I’d have a use for it soon.
I cut the sleeve off, then cut along the underarm seam to open the sleeve flat. I cut out two rectangles big enough to cover the holes (and a bit extra).
I cut out lightweight iron-on interfacing just a trite smaller than my patches and ironed it on the wrong side of my patches with high heat and steam.
I pinned the patches on those terrible looking knees. Then, I headed to the sewing machine and zig-zagged all the way around the edges, making sure to backstitch. Knit fabric can bubble when sewn on the machine. To minimize this, I tried to stay on the edge of the black fabric and not on the pants. The interfacing on the patches stabilizes the stitching.
Ta-da! All done. Wasn’t that easy?
