Patch Torn Jeans with Lace

A great way to go green with your clothes is to wear them until they can't be worn any more. But what about  once they get holes? Small holes in casual jeans aren't usually a huge deal but if they are bigger or show more skin than you'd like, you can save your pants by patching the holes with lace. Leslie from Love Stitched shows you how to both reinforce the hole to prevent further tearing and also how to back fill with pretty lace to make some stylish pants.


  • Jeans with a hole
  • lace
  • scrap denim
  • pins
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
