Strong and durable as jeans are, they invariably end up with worn patches. It seems that holes in jeans are now fashionable, but if you're not keen on that look, there's many ways to mend the hole and extend the life of an otherwise good pair of jeans.
Stephanie, from Swoodson Says, shows how to mend jeans by hand stitching an appliqué over the worn out patch. The sashiko style stitching embellishes the appliqué, in this case, a beetle pattern which is a free download. This cute beetle would look great on kids' jeans!
