Because Patches Are No Fun.
I nearly fainted whenever my favorite jeans tore at work. Now I'm loving them more than ever!

  • How to make jeans. Make The Best Out Of A Hole In Your Jeans. - Step 1
    Step 1

    So here is the tear in my jeans. First, gather all your supplies and fold your jeans so they aren't flapping around all over the place, with the hole facing up to work with.

    Cut away any frayed edges and any strings, widening the hole a bit for a mouth shape. For mine, I tried making a "D" so it looks like a open-smiley face. ( :D )

    Next, make some teeth! I cut out a small rectangle of my white denim and stuck it in the "mouth hole" and drew them from there.

    Sew over your teeth lines to help keep the fabric from fraying after you cut them out... and I think it looks nicer.

    Now for the fun part! Take your chalk (I was lazy and didn't feel like looking for my chalk and used an ink pen instead), and draw your critter! I decided to make a dinosaur. Don't worry about being too neat, you will paint over them. As you can see, his left arm is going all sorts of directions on mine. :)

    Make sure you have a strip of cardboard inside your jeans for this part so your paint doesn't bleed through. Paint your critter!

    Once the paint is dry, (and BE SURE it is dry!), turn your pants inside out. Use fabric glue around the raw edges to help keep from fraying. On mine, I went ahead and stitched around the mouth also to be extra safe. Make sure the teeth are positioned right, maybe by pinning it in place, and glue them on.

    Turn your pants rightside out, and add any details you'd like.

Thanks! Happy And I know what you mean, Maladignia, about the holes in the inner thighs... I couldn't think of any critters that could go there and not look way too strange. XP I would really love to see what other people can come up with, though!

Very cool! Unfortunately my pants mostly wear out on the inner part of the thigh so you wouldn't see a fix like this.

It might be cool to make a hole on purpose just to make this project. ;-)
