    Fun gift for my husband

    We have all heard it - they wear their favorite pair of blue jeans to death, the seat is full of holes, but when you suggest that its time to retire the things, they protest loudly and with feeling. I just went through this with my husband and this is what he will find under the tree this yeasr. Great way to use up all those itty bitty scraps as well - they make great stuffing!

    That is cute and functional. But stay away from my favorite jeans-I've been re-patching them since the 70's and they are just now getting broke in : )

    I had a customer who said every time she bought her husband new jeans he would manage to tear the seat on barbed wire around the farm. So, the next time he did so she embroidered hearts across the tear. He didn't notice it but his buddies did at breakfast the next time he wore them. He's much more careful now.

    But my husband wants to WEAR them, because they're just broken in.
