Whilst there are many DIY options to fix a holey clothing piece, UK based business Vintage-Patch offer an easy solution; iron on cotton print elbow, knee and other types of patches and appliques, ideal for adding an unusual accent to a remodelled garment or knitwear.
A clever, quick fix solution to holey clothes, or just to add a bit of interest to your boring pieces. Vintage-Patch patches are very easy to apply, simply iron on, although additional hand / machine stitching would be recommended for machine washable clothing.
Jnr RF has a pair of jeans that fit him so well, but, as with most 4yr old boys that climb and fall over, his jeans have finally given way at the knee.
I've used a Vintage-Patch skull and crossbones kid sized patch to iron onto the holey knee, and there we go, a pair of no-longer-holey jeans, with a funky new look.
The additional little star patch included in the pack, is just the right size to cover up the hole in my cardigan; the cardigan that started the holey clothing conversation!
With pretty floral ovals, heart patches and retro prints, in both child and adult sizing, there are many options to adorn a sweater elbow, jeans, or leggings knees.
I have three patch sets (one matching pair in a set) to giveaway to three Recycled Fashion readers.
Here are the three patch colour sets to choose from:
(Red patches are heart shaped)
