This specific pair of jeans I have tends to wear thin not very far from the crotch seam, towards the back. In this case, I can't really turn them into shorts and I would really like to avoid having to throw them out. I may have paid good money for them...or gotten them at a discount or thrift store. Regardless, I like them even though I have trouble taking pictures of them on.
A friend of mine taught me how to do this but I wanted to share the technique with others. It is a similar patching style to other jeans-patching instructables with a little bit of craziness thrown in there.
This is my first instructable. Thanks for being nice and leaving any constructive feedback regarding this instructable!
Step 1: Gathering Materials
a sewing machine
thread (choose a color to match or contrast your jeans)
old jeans fabric or scraps (the color doesnt matter)
jeans you love with a rip, tear, or hole that you'd like to get rid of
a little patience and love never hurts
