Ok. I hate mending. Seriously. I would rather make something from scratch than mend. Even hemming pants or reattaching a button ... yuckeroni.
If I can figure out how to turn a mending chore into some semblance of a quilting task ... well ... THAT is something altogether different.
This is a pair of my daughter's leggings with not one, but two holes. (She's an overachiever in this department.)
Not expensive. And she'll probably outgrow them next week.
But never mind. I've got an idea.

I drew a few hearts on my computer, printed them out, traced them onto fusible web, made fusible patches from pretty coordinating fabric (Lecien's Flower Sugar) & found matching thread.
Then I spent all of about 10 minutes at my sewing machine.
Only the top and bottom hearts are covering holes. But they're so far apart I thought it would look better with a few connecting elements.
I don't think anyone would ever guess this was a patch job!
AND she really likes them. Bonus!
