Fabric Mending Tape

I don't buy expensive jeans very often...almost never, I'm a Old Navy kinda girl, But I bought a expensive pair about 4 months ago...They came distressed a little but I was starting to get a hole in the knee...The pants are only 4 months old!! So I stopped wearing them so they wouldn't keep wearing out. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought Fabric Mending Tape! Different from a Fabric Patch...The patches are pretty thick and even though you put it on the inside of your clothes the edges would still be noticable through the clothes because it's such a thick patch....So when I was there I saw Mending Tape! It's very thin and light weight...So I'm trying it and I think it will be perfect.

 Outside of pants, wearing out in the knee
 
 Inside of Pants: Wearing in the knee
 Outside of Pants: wearing on the inside seam
 
 Inside of Pants: Wearing on the seam
 The pants came distressed a little but I don't want Holes!

 CHEAP solution!
 Mending Tape ironed on the pants
The hole on the seam with the mending tape on the inside of the jeans, can't see Anything!

This is good to know!! Thank you!!!

I have to say, that's why I own zero pairs of expensive jeans. really. Mine are all under 40 bucks and I keep it that way because I seem to always be putting holes in them, some mysterious reason?? But you have made a great discovery! Thank you for passing it on!

Great idea. I have a pair of jeans that I tried mending but it didn't last. I might have to check out this product so I can prevent holes in my now favorite pair.
