My son loves these trousers (actually I also do), unfortunately they got a hole on the knee and he did not want to wear them anymore. I unstitched the side of the pants and embroidered over the hole with my machine. I have an innovis 80α by Brother. This machine is not expensive and does very good work. I am using this machine only for embroidery but actually it is a computer sewing machine and it does lots of other things.
