Years ago it would seem like by the time summer rolled around my kids jeans were on their last leg. It was hard for me to justify buying new jeans for them knowing they’d rarely wear them during the summer months and I would have to buy more when we went shopping for the new school year. My friend Zoe has a great solution: an awesome DIY Knee Patch Tutorial:
My eldest boy has a thing with wearing the knees out of his jeans. Maybe it’s because I buy used clothing. At any rate, this is how I take care of the problem.
1. Start by ripping out the inner leg seam. For a small pair of pants, you practically have to rip from the crotch down to the hem, but not quite. I ripped from pin to pin on this pair of jeans.
