I noticed my favourite garden working trousers were getting very thin in the part where that always happens because of riding the bicycle (that's my means of transportation).
photo 1: close-up of the tiny holes I decided to make a repair before this would suddenly turn into a hole. I like these trousers because they are wide enough to wear leggings or tights underneath when it's cold outside.
First I searched my 'repair kit' for a strip of material. I found this navy-blue twill-tape. I pinned it along the part to be repaired at the inside.

The next part was the machine sewing. To make the thin part of fabric sturdy again I stitched over it in small 'stitched zigzag' stitches several times.
