How to Sew Patches on Your Jeans

Customize your jeans and show off your retro style with simple sew-on patches.


If you’re in need of some style inspiration, look no further than the ‘70s. The denim in this decade was full of fun and funky patches and is easy to recreate with a few simple steps. Here’s how to sew patches on your jeans.

Difficulty Level: Easy

What You’ll Need: Denim, patches, iron and ironing board, sewing kit

How To:

  1. Place your jeans flat on an ironing board and place your patch wherever you think it looks best.

  2. Grab your sewing kit and stitch around the edges to keep the patch in place. Repeat until your jeans have as many patches as you want.

  3. No patches? No problem! Alternatively, you can customize your jeans with heat transfers. These heat transfers iron on clothing and don’t need to be stitched.
