I Love these Jeans…Ripped, Torn, and Compromised, but So Very Trendy. 🙂
The Jeans are Easy to Wear and So Comfortable. I Wash and Wear them lots.

BUT after a short time, the Jean Fabric is Worn Through and Everything Begins to Show.
Skin. Underwear. And More Skin.
HMM…Not a Great Look.
I hated to Toss them. So I Went to Phase Two. Old Quilt Squares as Patches!
Of Course, Patching Jeans has been around for absolutely forever.
BUT…Here’s the TRICK…
I Patched the Holes in the Jeans with Fabric Squares AND the Quilt Batting!
The Quilt Square Fabric is Thin, but the Batting Gives the Patch Added Oomph.
The Quilt Patch with Batting Easily Stands Up to the Heft of the Jean Material.
What to Do: From an Old Quilt, Cut Out Patches to Fit the Size of the Worn and Holey Spots.
This Upper Thigh Section was “Factory-Made” but the Jean Fabric was about to Wear-through.
The 2-Square Quilt Patch fits the space and adds Strength, Durability, and Colorful Fun.
Pin the Quilt Squares and Batting in Place. Top-stitch to Firmly Secure.
If you Don’t have an Old Quilt to Cut Squares from, Try Quilt Squares and Natural Batting…

Natural Cotton Batting. Amazon LINK.
Trim the Extra-raggedy places and thread bits.
Quilt Squares and Batting add a Bit More Life to Faded, but Oh So Comfy Jeans.
With Crazy Color and Fun Mixed Patterns at No-Extra Cost!
I’m going to put the patches on the inside of the rips so they peak through but the jeans still look like jeans and less like patchwork pants. Thanks for the idea!
Hi Becky – that’s excellent…actually, I did the patches both ways…inside and out! Enjoy!
I would love to have ideas for solutions. I always have problems with my inner thighs wanting to peak out of my jeans. I have never been able to have good solution. I always have to throw my good jeans out. Something most fortunately will never understand Others will be raising the hand me too, me too while they chuckle.
