So I've made some improvements as per Nicole's & Inge's suggestions.

I did a pretty good job of keeping the boards straight. The centre... is all over the place. I was trying to sew in a moving car during a hails storm, or at least that is my excuse.

I’ve been patching our linen/cotton blend napkins for a couple years now with a contrasting fabric and thread whenever a hole develops. I like them even better with more character. I use a zig zag stitch and do not finish edges, the woven patch will fray down to the zig zag and have a cute scrappy/scarecrow looking patch going. Final photo is of another napkin after a few washes.

Hi- my first attempt at a BB, my first post and my first serious attempt at patching anything!

I did a running stitch around the outside and did a cross stitch through it to secure it and I like the aesthetic of it!

My friend is attached to this cloth bag, so I thought I'd try for my first PEP badge and fix it for her. The strap is the obvious problem, but it was also starting to fray at the top edge, so I made it two new straps and covered the damaged edge with folded strips of fabric.

So it's not exactly a "hole" being patched, but hopefully this is close enough?

Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

I'll call the frayed edge a "hole" and that you patched it. Kind of an edge case so I'll approve it for your first BB. Congratulations!

Thanks Mike - yes it was an "edge" case - a patch on an edge! Same skill set and the owner's birthday is today, so I figured I'd fix her bag as a surprise for her.
PS - the patch material came from one arm off a cotton shirt that had been badly stained - upcycling wins.

Working on this BB is good motivation to get started on winter wardrobe mending. Today I patched some holes in the sleeve of my barn jacket.

Sewing on the patch by hand.


Patch sewn in place.


It's a large patch, however, and I was concerned it might pull away from the sleeve, so I secured it with some freeform running stitches.

Done.

Initially thought to patch the knee of these jeans with denim but decided to use part of a deconstructed tie instead.

The hole in this was at a tension point, so I picked a large patch to add a little breathing room. The patch has seen a little less sun than the main shirt, but I don't really care enough to worry about it.

I have a lovely pair of embroidered jeans that got a rip near the back pocket. Got a pair of jeans from a charity shop that would have gone in the recycling for the patch. Not pretty but now wearable!
