How to fix a torn pull-up or potty training pants

I wish I had known this years ago, but just recently I finally figured out how to fix a torn pull-up.

Pull-ups cost a fortune and there is nothing more frustrating than having a brand new, perfectly good pull-up tear on you. And for the past few days my daughter was tearing one while getting ready for bed E.V.E.R.Y. S.I.N.G.L.E. N.I.G.H.T. I was freaking out.

I had tried packing tape and duct tape, but the tape always bothered her and she’d have a meltdown. Plus, it made it really hard to pull the training pants up and down at night if she had to go to the bathroom. Then it finally dawned on me. You just sew it closed using a needle and thread! It doesn’t have to be pretty, because nobody is going to see it. So it doesn’t matter if you are terrible at hand stitching. You basically just need to get enough stitches in there to hold the thing closed. I have gotten good enough at it that if my daughter accidentally tears it at night, I can stitch it up while she is still wearing them. It has saved us a fortune!
