A scrap of woven iron-on interfacing
Time required: Ten minutes
First, turn your article of clothing inside-out, and find the hole.
Cut a piece of interfacing a little bigger than your hole, and lay it adhesive-side-down on top of your hole. Heat up your iron, and press the interfacing until it sticks.
Turn your garment right side out. Thread your machine with matching thread, and set it to zig-zag stitch. Zig-zag back and forth several times over the hole, making sure you catch any frayed edges. Now should have something that looks like this.
Trim the threads and you’re good to go!
