(My super duper) Up-cylced patched jeans. :)

These crazy jeans were given to me by my younger sister probably 4 years ago. I don't know what it is about these jeans but weather I add a few pounds or drop a few they always fit me. Miracle jeans truly. They are like the jeanse that keep on lasting, even if the bottoms are all tadered and torn. :)  So when one of the knees finally got a hole in them I decided to patch 'em and keep on wearing 'em.. Especially since I am at the 'add a few pounds stage' these days. :)

So here are my up-cylced patched jeans. :)

I really like the big patches. 
I hand sewed them on. It took me more time than I thought. I also before sewing on the patches ironed them on with an iron on adhesive to help keep the patches on and the hole from getting bigger.

Here I am on my balcony, trying to give ya 'all a better look at them. 

Hope this is inspiring to someone somewhere. I know there are few who would wear these pants. :) 
Deb your jeans are living on.... you would be proud. :)

In my west corner..using what I have to keep my jeans alive.
Psst...i just discovered the beginning of a hole right next to one of my back pockets. ???

Love the pale blue fabric on your jeans, it's beautiful.I think it's even nicer than plain jeans.
In the past I've sewed embroidered patches and or added some pale blue sequins on my jeans just for a remake or if there's a hole in them.
I've got the recycling bug, as I just got a new sewing machine and have cut up my hubby's old corduroy pants and his old blue torn check shirt into granny squares. Once you got the squares you can do so many things, like make a tote, cushion covers, curtains, duvet covers.
I've made a corduroy pouch for my Tracfone LG500G smart phone so I don't scratch the touch screen and sewed a check giraffe image on the cover.
It's exciting to make something creative out of discarded stuff.
