    • Examine the damage – cut off any long threads and clean off any debris.

    • Grab your iron-on patch.

    • We are using a contrasting patch for visibility, but you may want something that matches with your jeans or a fun contrasting color.

    • Preheat your iron according to the recommended settings found on the packaging information included with the patch.

    • Take a scrap of denim and place it inside the pant leg, beneath the hole.

    • This scrap material will keep your patch from sticking the front of your jeans to the back, which would effectively seal the leg opening shut (not a good thing...)

    • Measure the length and width of the hole in your jeans, including any damaged area around the hole.

    • In our case the hole is about 1.5 inches by 2 inches.

    • Mark your final patch measurements on the patch with tailor’s chalk.

    • Turn the pant leg inside out.

    • Gently try and lift the scrap of fabric from the inside of the pant leg.

    • If the scrap comes off, you no longer need it.

    • If the scrap is held firmly in place by the patch, simply trim away the excess fabric from where the scrap is adhered with your scissors, leaving the remaining scrap in place.

This is useful, but I hope we can see more. In particular, my kids have many holes in polar fleece pants that they love. You can't do an iron-on patch with fleece (the synthetic fiber can't take the heat), and sewing on a patch doesn't seem like a great idea since the material is stretchier than the patch. Does Patagonia have advice on how to repair these?

Instead of a scrap piece of denim, I put another patch on the inside and iron them together.

Nice instructions for patching jeans, but need a video on how to patch a hole in a fleece jacket. Guessing we can't just put a denim patch on fleece material, as ironing would melt the fleece. Would love suggestions.

Thanks!
