2. Align and secure the tear

Lay your jeans flat on a clean surface, ensuring the tear is fully exposed. Carefully align the torn edges, making sure they meet perfectly. Use fabric clips or pins to hold the torn edges together firmly.

Thread your needle and knot the end. Begin sewing from one end of the tear, working horizontally across it. Use a simple running stitch or backstitch to secure the edges together. Make sure to sew close to the edge to keep the tear aligned.

4. Sew vertically to create the braid pattern

Once you’ve completed the horizontal stitching, knot the thread securely. Thread the needle again and start sewing vertically between the previous horizontal stitches. Pass the needle under and over the horizontal stitches alternately, creating a braid-like pattern. Pull the thread gently after each pass to ensure a tight and neat braid.

5. Finish and secure the repair

Once you’ve reached the end of the tear, knot the thread securely on the inside of the jeans. Trim any excess thread. Optionally, you can apply fabric glue along the stitched tear on the inside of the jeans for extra reinforcement. Let the glue dry (if used) and then try on your jeans to ensure the repair is secure and comfortable.
