Positive reinforcement – preventing and repairing knee patches

There’s no doubting that kids lead a rough and tumble lifestyle. Tearing through shrubbery and falling down rabbit holes just goes with the territory, but constantly replacing torn and worn-out clothing can take its toll on your bank balance. That is why we recommend taking the traditional route – patch wherever and whenever necessary.

Creative patching is a great way to spice up old clothes and generate interest in forgotten garments. Try adding teddy bears and butterflies or spiders and soccer balls to missing knees and elbows. Even a simple zigzag stitch can liven things up. Just make sure that that patch is slightly larger than the worn out section – at least 2.5cm all round should do the trick.

If you want to nip the problem in the bud before it starts, then opt for reinforced knees and elbows (we’re talking about the clothes here and not your kids). When putting together a new pair of pants consider working some knee patches into the design. Whether hidden on the inside or boldly displayed on the outside, these will help prolong the life of your child’s wardrobe and your wallet.

We have a great variety of vibrant fabrics in stock that are perfect for children’s clothing. Give us a call on our Golden Number 0861 322 839 | 0861 FAB TEX to find out more or visit us in-store today.
