Favorite Old Pair of Jeans-Made new again

You know you have them, A favorite pair of jeans.
Cut right, fit right, length right, everything right. And then the manufacturer goes and discontinues them and you are stuck, with just one pair.

Just one pair of the perfect jeans.

Then it happens, One little mishap and rip... your jeans are ruined. Or are they?

Inspired by this photo on pinterest.



And this one



I pulled out my trusty box of scrap fabric, and decided to really rip them up.


Well actually I just added the two holes on the other leg. The knee rip is the accidental one (you should have seen my knee) I still have a scar.


I did do some stitching around the holes and I may add some more holes but this is a start.

I was a bit timid to put a huge rip in them, but I think I need a bit more, and maybe an orange color fabric as well.
What do you think?
I always enjoy your opinions.

This really wasn't that hard. A little Stitch Witchery, some scrap fabric scissors and heavy duty thread in contrasting colors and voila.

My inner hippie is beaming. I so remember embellishing my jeans with elaborate patches and embroidery. What a fun way to renew and recycle.

I love jeans like that ripped and holes and patched

since I am a lady with age now LOL I have quit wearing them and also the beaded jeans. I seen a lady one day about my age with them on and thought oh I guess I really do look awful in my jeans so I sold them in a yard sale.
I had a favorite pair from the 80's all so faded and ripped and patched and my butt fit in them back in the day LOL sort of like Steve Tyler jeans
