November 24th, 2020

We all have that one piece of clothing that we always wear no matter how long we’ve been using it. Whether it be your favorite shirt or pants, we all have our own reasons why we can just never let go of these items.

However, we often wear it most of the time, which leads the fabric to wear out and become more vulnerable to unwanted holes. These unsightly holes can also become bigger the longer you don’t do something about it.

Directions:

1) Turn your favorite piece of clothing inside-out. It would be advisable if you iron the section of the hole until it’s wrinkle-free. Then cut a piece of the fusing web that is slightly bigger than the hole you’re looking to patch.

2) After cutting the fusing web, push the fabric surrounding the hole together until you can no longer see the hole. Once you’re done, carefully place the fusing web over it.

3) Next, plug your iron in and set it to the “wool” setting. Make sure that you put wax paper over the fusing web so that it won’t stick to the iron.

4) After placing the wax paper, press the iron to the wax paper and hold it for 10 seconds without moving it.

5) Turn the material inside out to check if all loose threads have been merged. If there is, just repeat from step one until you’ve got all area covered!
