We have all been there. A hole in your favorite knit top. Or a rip in a sweater. These things are sad but easily fixable, unlike my favorite lace dress being torn apart in the dryer (on accident). That one is not so easy to save. Luckily, you only need a few supplies and you’ll be fixing holes in knit garments in a flash with this clothing hack.
This pesky hole was shipped this way to me when I bought it. I was super bummed because it was a final sale item from Reformation (more on that brand soon) and I realllly wanted to keep it. Instead of just writing it off, I decided to work my DIY mind and fix it. Here’s how…
Push the fibers together to create as small a hole as possible. If you need to, use the iron to press this spot. Cut out small pieces of the fusible bonding web and the adhesive.
Place the fusible bonding web down on top of the hole first, then the adhesive on top of that. Use your iron and press the adhesive according to the instructions on the packaging, or until it sticks.
Wa-la! The hole is patched. You can’t even tell there was a hole in the first place! I could have used much smaller pieces to fix the hole and I know that next time. Only use enough to cover the hole, you don’t want too much excess.
I hope you enjoyed this clothing hack! If you want to see more, let me know in the comments. I love hacks because they make life so much easier and less tears are shed over ruined items.
