If you have ever experienced the frustration of finding a hole in your favorite pair of leggings, you know how disappointing it can be.
But despair not! With a little bit of time and the right supplies, it is easy to patch up those unsightly holes without having to throw away your beloved garment.
In this article, I will provide instructions on how to quickly and easily fix a hole in a legging using a few simple tools.
Use Fabric Glue To Patch Over The Hole
The first step to fixing a hole in leggings is to clean the area around the hole and make sure it is completely dry. To ensure that no dirt or lint gets stuck on the glue, use a lint roller or brush to get rid of any debris.
Next, choose a suitable fabric glue that will not damage your leggings and won’t be too sticky when you apply it.
Apply an even layer of glue around the hole and gently press down with your fingers to make sure everything sticks together properly. Allow it to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing the item again so that the patch holds firmly in place.
To finish off, cut out a piece of fabric from an old t-shirt or something else similar in size and shape to the patch needed for your leggings.
Sew On A Patch To Cover Up The Hole
This is an incredibly easy fix that requires minimal skill and supplies. All you need is a piece of fabric larger than the hole, some thread, and a needle.
Start out by cutting the patch to be slightly larger than the size of the hole in your leggings. If you have any old fabric lying around, such as an old t-shirt or pillow case, that would work perfectly.
Now place the patch on top of the hole, ensuring it is centered and straight.
Next, take a needle and thread that matches your chosen fabric patch and begin to sew around all sides of it using small stitches until it is firmly attached to your garment. When finished simply snip off any excess thread and admire your handy work!
Using Fusible Adhesive Tape
Fusible adhesive tape (sometimes called iron-on adhesive or heat-set fabric adhesive) is an ideal tool for repairing holes as small as thumbtacks or larger than the size of a quarter.
Here are some tips to get you started on fixing your favorite pair of leggings:
Begin by prepping the fabric around the hole by trimming any loose threads and lightly pressing the area with an iron so it’s flat and smooth.
Next, cut out two pieces of fusible tape slightly larger than the hole and make sure that they fit perfectly when placed over the damaged area.
Wear Leggings With Holes
Now, here’s taking a problem and turning it on its head.
If you want to stand out from the crowd – wear leggings with holes as a style statement.
And, if you are the type who wouldn’t mind getting some extra attention – Go ahead! Give it a try!
And while we appreciate anyone embracing individuality by adopting unusual clothing styles, wearing leggings with holes doesn’t seem like much of a risk.
