Your question: Can you embroider over a hole?

What stitch should I use to fix a hole?

Lay the patching fabric under the hole, right side up. Then, bring the edges of the hole as close together as possible, without puckering the hole. Use a small zig zag stitch on the sewing machine to stitch around the edges of hole, catching as much fabric (patch and garment) as possible to make the patch hold.

How do you fix a hole in your clothes without sewing?

Using hemming tape to mend a tear is another go-to method you can try. This will do the work without sewing. Hemming tape works like glue. If you heat it, the glue will melt and stick the fabrics together.
