I could hear her panicked screech out in "the back 40." Back in my work room, I found her poking her finger through a hole in her favorite jeans.

"You gotta add another patch! I LUV these jeans!"

Now, I know holes in jeans are in style, but, this was an embarrassing hole. So I dug out the necessary fabric and stitched a simple patch.

Mission accomplished--jeans saved...until the next hole.

Very original, what a good idea, I would gladly wear jeans like this!

Glad to see I am not the only one patching denim. My boss wears coveralls, and I swear she must be climbing through barbwire.with all the tares she asks me to mend. Because of the location, she doesn't want patches on the outside which might be a lot easier to do. Inside patches with darning is a lot less fun.

Now THAT's a creative patch!! Extending the wear of a favourite pair of jeans is a wonderful thing. I live in jeans in the cool/cold weather but I have long legs and they're getting increasingly difficult to find.

That's beyond just a patch. Beautiful work, as always!
