Difficulty:
Moderately Easy

Instructions

      As mentioned above, I'm no pro at this. There's probably better articles, but this method worked so if the shoe fits, wear it, so to speak....
      First step, pull the pocket out of your pants and find the hole as shown in picture above.

      Find a needle and thread it.

      After you thread the needle, you'll need to tie a knot in the end of the thread. To do this simply wrap the end of the thread around the end of your finger.

      Now you are ready to start sewing your pants. Starting at one end of the tear, press the needle through the fabric beneath the tear in your pants pocket.

      Pull the needle all the way through, then turn the needle around and press it through again in the opposite direction. Try to get your needle though the fabric as close as possible to the first stitch you made. Continue to do this along the length of fabric beneath the tear in your blue jeans / pants pocket.

      When you get to the opposite end of the tear, the tear in your blue jeans / pants pocket should be completely stitched shut.
    • 9
      Now you'll want to tie off your thread so that you don't have a loose thread hanging off the end of the stitch. This is easy. When you do your last stitch, you'll notice before you pull it tight a loop is created. Simply stick your needle through the loop and then pull it tight.
