This is my most recent project: adding more patches to my 17-year-old son’s work jeans. He wears them for baling, working on cars, whenever he needs his grubby clothes. This pair has at least 12 patches. I even reinforced the knees and front thighs. He wears them hard. I threatened to throw them away, but he reminded me that new or old, his jeans would be like this. I’ll just keep patching them…
torn jeans, old denim for patching.
