repacho jeans

Growing up I spent hours watching my grandmother do beautiful stitch work, she was a great seamstress.  I also watched my mother do amazing crochet work as well as almost anything creative.  When my favorite jeans developed rips, and holes, I decided to save them.  A bit of stitching, pieces of vintage crochet and some boro stitching, made my jeans better than new.


  1. Very creative work with patching the jeans! Lovely idea!
    I need to patch some of my husband's jeans but I'm just doing a free motion patch with cloth underneath the hole. But for women, this is a great idea!

    1. Thanks...this was so fun to do, I think I want to try to over dye the next pair of patched jeans.
