This is an old shirt I've had since I was probably 7 years old. It's starting to disintegrate and now has a hole in the elbow. I patched it with another piece of old shirt! It's my favorite so I I'm trying to keep it around as long as possible!
Both shirt and patch are cotton and so is the thread.

This is a first for me. The only regret I have is not using darker material for the patch. My husband is happy though, that's what matters. These are his favorite shorts.

Note: This is great for a first try, however, your stitches on the outside of the pants are long enough they may tend to get caught on things, so try to make them shorter the next time!

To document completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (< 2 min):
 -  Show your holey fabric, patch, thread, and needle or sewing machine
 -  Show your patch being sewn onto the fabric
 -  Show your completed patched fabric
 -  It doesn't have to be pretty but it does have to be functional.  Finish the edges of the patch so it doesn't fray.

Clarifications:
 - All textile badge bits require natural fabrics and threads, such as cotton, wool, silk, linen/flax, and nettle. Synthetic materials are not allowed, even if they are recycled or repurposed.



I patched up a pair of my 100% cotton work jeans that had a worn seam.  I made a patch from another worn pair of the same work jeans.

I pinned the new patch to the worn seam on the inside of the jeans.  
I used a zig zag stitch over the entire area to finish the patch seam and secure the seam and fabric to the patch.  
The zig zag stitch will secure that the edges of the patch don't unravel...that's how I finished the edges of the patch.
Then, trimmed all the thread ends and took pictures.

Note: Good try but if you do not catch up where the stitching has come away, it will continue to come apart.  The edge arount the hole needs to be tacked down to prevent fraying.  The large stitchesmay catch. Good attempt though

Hi Macey. When I saw the first photo, I thought: 'this isn't a hole, this is the seam that has come loose. Your stretchy pants don't need a patch, you only have to re-stitch that seam'. When I saw the last photo I was sure I was right.

I'm not sure if I know what "finishing" the edges really means, but using the critiques I received from my last attempt to make a patch, I made a new patch that looks a lot nicer! (Luckily I have plenty of clothes in need of patching)! Hopefully this is sufficient.
