Usualy I sacrifice bottom pockets. Yes, it's cruel, but they are perfect size, color and i don't have to sew the edges.
So you need to carefully  rip the seams. Don't damage jeans! Or you will have some more holes.. 

Step 3: Covering The Hole

Cover hole form outside, see if it fits. (actually you had to do it sooner- just don't wait till your holes are Pizza size and you'll be fine). 
Choose how exactly you want the pocket to be sewn on. Attach it with pins. 

Step 4: Sewing

Hopefully you know how to sew. Just choose the right color thread and a nice needle, or you can do it with seewing-machine (witch I don't have- I do all the sewing by hand.. Oh..).
