The knee on my son's corduroys ripped. (Pre-distressed cords are a bad idea, really, but they were the only brown pants we could find when we were shopping for Indiana Jones costume components a few months ago.) He requested a red patch. This is my first time doing this kind of patch. I unpicked/seam-ripped the non-topstitched leg seam in order to be able to do this.
I like it! (I hope it doesn't rip again near the edge of the patch!)
I also mended a backpack and hemmed jeans for my talented bow-making neighbor today, too. I think I'm going to make a few quilt blocks next. :)
