Easiest way, iron on patch. They sell them where you put them on the outside, or on the inside. Inside tends to look neater.

I have used iron-on patches, but they have always come off after a few turns in the dryer and they are too tough to sew. I would get some fusible webbing at a fabric store, medium or heavy weight. Cut to same size as your patch, iron onto inside of jeans...instructions with the webbing. Stitch around the edge of the patch to be sure it is secure and doesn't loosen in the laundry. Webbing is avail. by the yard and not costly. Handy to have on hand. Blanket stitch on the edges of the patch would help keep it from fraying and stitches should be small so's they don't look ugly on the outside of the jeans.

Buy a new pair and keep the others for welding. Also get some wisdom. Welding will burn holes in cloths all the time. I suspect a troll.
