How to Repair Tears in Clothing

By: viviennebarlow

  Don't you hate it when your favorite pair of jeans rip? Or when your shirt gets a hole in it? If you're not able to get to a sewing machine, here is an easy way to mend that tear.


Things you will need:
  • A needle
  • Matching thread
  • Scissors
  • Pins

Start by threading your needle. Pull the string through the hole of the needle and bring it far enough so that one side is half as long as the other. Tie a knot at the end of the longer side.



Before sewing, you may want to pin the ripped seams together.



Pull your needle all the way up from the underside of your fabric. Go back about 1/8th of an inch from where you started and pull all the way back down.



Next, bring the needle through the fabric about 1/8th of an inch in front of your first stitch.



Bring the thread back down through the fabric where you first started. Repeat until you have finished the whole length of the rip!



Tips & Warnings

  • Right handed people should move from right to left; left handed people should move from left to right.
  • Be careful with the sharp needle!
