My boys loved old jeans, and I am so tickled with that because they really find old jeans the cutest and coolest thing to wear. This year, however, I need to throw some away because of the fact that they are almost unusable anymore! Take this one as an example. If you haven't guessed yet, this is the second set of patches that I sewed on. I keep them for a long time because it has a lining to warm them in the winter. They have some of these in the closet, and they are their favorite jeans to wear. Well, I think I am glad that I have boys. If they were girls, I don't think they will wear patched and old jeans. We can actually be practical and save money. Clothes are expensive. Spending money on something that is not a necessity is not really practical in this economy right now.
