Come On Up To The House

Monster Pants

| 1 Comment

My little Finnegan is really hard on his pants. He loves cars and trucks…and running on his knees full speed along the carpet. Almost every pair of his jeans now have holes in them. I almost hate to go and buy yet another pair, because I know they will end up like all of the rest. I was thinking about throwing them all out, when I came across a post on a blog I read. It had one picture of a knee patched with a monster face…and I knew this was exactly what I needed to do to solve my problem.

I went through Finn’s drawers and came downstairs with 5 pairs of jeans. FIVE! So I pulled all of my felt out from my secret stash I use for my random projects, and started putting together these little faces. I think they turned out pretty well. I had to hand sew them, as I knew I wasn’t good enough with my sewing machine to even attempt.

He loves them!

To be a little different, since we have a lot of monster pants now, I created a crab & shark patch for this this pair.

Isla started to feel left out. She had a hole in one of her pairs of pants and so this is how I patched it. She is very excited!

If you do try out a patch or two…post a picture! I would love to see what your little monster knees look like!

  1. These patches are roaringly good. The children love showing them off too. What a great idea.
