Fixing ripped snow pants - a tutorial...

Having moved to rural Iowa, my kids horizons have expanded (well their area of play has expanded)  There's a lot more places to explore, climb, hike and scale.  It appears my daughter decided to either take on her first barb wire fence or some sort of tree with her new snow pants on...
I was trying to figure out how to fix this without slapping regular old gray duct tape on it.
While cruising the aisles of Michael's yesterday I came across the stuff.  It is beyond genius!!! Duct tape on a sheet in cool colors!

I gave my daughter the option of this pattern or a plain purple that would blend in.  I was so excited when she picked this one!  Girl after my own heart!
Next, I needed to figure out how to cut it in a cool pattern...
Cricut to the rescue!!!
Locked and loaded!  At this point I am patting myself on the back for being so smart :-)
Mission accomplished!
As Always, Karie
