We all have an old pair of jeans sitting in the closet. Rather than get rid of my old jeans, I like to think of fun and creative ways to make them more trendy. If you want to learn some great tips and tricks to refashioning your old jeans, my tutorial is definitely for you! Follow my simple, step-by-step guide, and learn the ins and outs of totally revamping jeans! I will show you 3 different ways to DIY an old pair of jeans to get the jeans you’ve always wanted!
For this first trend, I removed the pockets from the back of a pair of jeans using a seam ripper.
Once the pockets are off you are going to reattach them but in a position that shows the gorgeous darker material that was under the original pocket. Add fabric glue to the back of the pocket and stick it back on. I love that this is a no-sew project!
I am totally obsessed with this pocket removal trend!
I sometimes find that when it comes to ripped jeans, the rips can be a little too big.
To make sure that the rip doesn’t get any bigger, use a sewing machine, and sew a zig-zag stitch and straight stitch behind the rip. You can be as messy as you want because it fixes the rip ad also looks pretty awesome!
I adore how much texture this adds to the pair of jeans!
For this last DIY, cut a small piece of denim from some scrap pieces you may have from another project.
To add a cool, denim color contrast to this pair, flip the denim piece around and sew the back of it facing outwards. Then pin the denim piece behind the rip and sew it in place.
Make sure to trim any excess fabric from the denim piece.
Adding fabric behind the rips definitely adds depth to a pair of jeans! Which DIY trend is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
