Heart on my Knee - Heart Hole Patch - Sisters, What!

Heart on my Knee - Heart Hole Patch

One thing about me and my jeans is that I like to hold on to them for as long as humanly possible; Especially my favorite pairs. As spring descended upon us oh so nicely, I went through my jeans to put them away for winter. One of my pairs was finally at it's wit ends...that is it was time to retire them as pants. But I knew they still had a little life left in them yet.

So I cut off the bottom of the jeans, but still wasn't sure what to do with the big hole. After much serious contemplation, I decided to try out a reverse heart applique. Using other scrap dark jean material, I sewed a heart under my jeans and then cut out the actual jeans to show the heart underneath.
I was so happy how it turned out, but even more happy to give yet another year of life to my beloved jeans. 

Bonus: I could still jump in them : )
