How to extend the life of hand me downs - part 3

I have another pair of jeans with a hole in the knee. Why do kids wear them out? Oh well I'm still liking the patches so I'm ok with patching them up. So here is patch up number 3.
I decided to do something a little different this time. One side is a truck and the other a Jeep - since girls like trucks too. The patches are in a printed jersey knit ironed on with fusible web and then I did a straight stitch around them. I didn't have to use a zig-zag like I did on this one or this one since the knit won't fray. From doing this one I realized that you should keep your patch in a simple shape as these were a pain to fit under the sewing machine to sew.
