Professional darning jeans
Sometimes your favorite jeans are torn in the most unexpected place. Especially it is a pity expensive brand jeans, which, it would seem, the demolition will not ... And throw the hand does not rise, and wear in this form is no longer possible. Sad pictures with awkward patches - wedges of grandmother's time - climb into my head ... Plans to change jeans to my son, take me to the dacha ... and yet I'm sorry ... Fortunately, everything is fixable if you have any sewing machine and you have minimal skills of working on it.
One of the conditions for success is to choose the right thread. Threads fit ordinary polyester №40. The choice in the shops of sewing accessories is very large. For example, “Ideal” or ”Dor tak”. We will select so. We choose the appropriate color, we wind a little bit of thread on the finger, and this “winding” is applied to the fabric. Two colors should be almost identical,then darn will be almost imperceptible.
We also need glue fabric. It is sold in fabric stores and is quite inexpensive. It happens white and black. Now turn the jeans inside out. We cut the pieces of glue and put them on the places where we will do darning.
Glue our blanks. This will facilitate the darning process. The iron must be hot enough. The side with glue is more rough to the touch. Put the patch on the side of the glue on the jeans, and slowly iron the pieces, pressing them well. We are waiting for a minute, letting it cool and fix well.
It is darning on any household machine with the help of reverse (reverse), this function is even in the oldest sewing machines. Set the stitch length adjuster to 2.8 -3.0 mm.
We darn slowly at first. “We will block” a gust with a wide zigzag, similar to a cardiogram, leading the line forward - backward. The edges of our “cardiogram” should not be even, then darn will be less noticeable and more natural.
Now we darn very carefully the place of the rush itself and the neighboring areas. If it is inconvenient to darn large lines, work with small sections, connecting them with smooth transitions. If white stitches are knocked out between the lines, direct the needle directly at them until they are noticeable. By the way, if the gust is big and a lot of threads are sticking out, you can cut off the excess, but do not cut all the threads to a full hole, you should leave the foundation. Although it is possible to restore even in the absence of threads, but it is a bit more complicated.
IMPORTANT: darn will look more naturally, if you scribble in the direction of the picture,and not in the direction of the scar tissue!
Line carefully, in parallel, without rushing. The result will please you. Gradually a skill will appear, and the process will take no more than 15 minutes. When the darn is done, turn the jeans inside out and cut off the excess glue.
After the work is finished , the jeans should be stripped with water and cloth. Your diligence will be rewarded. Jeans will last you a long time.
