To add a little flare to your jeans, all you need is a bit of fabric and a few minutes of stitching. You can use crazy patches or fabric for a hippie style, or strips of denim for the subdued look of flared-leg jeans.

  • Pants or jeans
  • 1/4 yard of fabric. Use colorful fabric or scrap denim.
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors [recommended scissors]
  • Seam ripper
  • Sewing machine or kit
Once you have gathered all your materials, let's get started.
