10 decorative ways to patch your clothes

 

 

Now and then, whether we like it or not, our favorite clothes are going to end up with a hole here or there.  Why not take the opportunity to add a decorative patch rather than giving up on that sweater or comfy pair of jeans?  Felted shapes, embroidery and crochet all add interesting flair while covering up a nasty tear.   Keep rips visible and add a background of a bright printed fabric.  You may just find yourself adding fun patches to all your clothes, whether they need them or not!
