I just learned how to patch my jeans...and they actually look good!! So I thought I would pass it on to you! I had so many pictures for you on step by step and wouldn't you know they got deleted. JUST MY LUCK! So I will just have to explain it.....here we go.
These jeans actually had a stain where I patched it. I LOVE these jeans but the stain wouldn't come out, probably because it was polyurethane, oops!
I made a slit with my scissors and then I used a razor blade to fray the edges. I cut out a LARGE piece off of some of my jeans that are not salvageable..much larger then the hole, to make it easier to work with and I pinned it on the underside of the hole. I then sewed with a zig zag stitch vertically and then horizontally LOTS AND LOTS! Once it is sewn on good and secure turn your jeans inside out and cut the patch back to size...and TADA you have cute IN STYLE jeans!
