Hiya,

I've got a tiny hole in my jeans. The belt tab has came away from the denim and left a wee hole. I've tried the iron on patch but it fell off!

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Magenta xx

    You could try sewing the belt loop over the hole so it can't be seen or oversew the hole with the same colour of thread so it is closed and less noticeable.

    Thanks,

    I had thought of the sewing thing but the denim is frayed. I think if I try and sew it, it'll still keep fraying. I'll give it a go though!

    Thanks,

    You could also use a VERY small spot of glue or Copydex to bind the frayed bits together enough to oversew them.

    Hiya,

    I'm going to try and take them back to the shop-I've hardly worn them!

    I'll let you know how I get on,

    Thanks,

    Hi Val and Thewife,

    Just to let you know, I returned my jeans to the shop I bought them from. Had them since February and they've been worn several times-anyway, they gave me a brand new pair!!
