Almost finished with the stitching. For some reason the hand-stitched piece is slightly smaller than the machine stitched that was cut to the same size.
Continuing on EK's jeans. The left is partially sashikoed (totally a word now) while the patch is tacked around both the tear and the edge of the patch. The patches are so large because the goal is to reach an area of strong fabric so that the finished repair will be stable.
