A quick and adorable way to mend pants.
This is more of a life hack than a craft, and although I've added it in the sewing section (because it's related to mending) it uses no actual sewing skill.

This is how my mom used to patch up my pants as a child. I was forever ripping holes in the knees. Now I'm using it on my daughter's clothes, which I love. Then I decided, why stop there? I can use this idea on mine, too.
