    So, the other day I was in Joann's WITHOUT my daughter and I was in heaven. I had an armful of fabric bolts and was happily checking out more. I was in the bargain aisle and I knelt down to check out a bolt that caught my eye. Then I heard..."RRRRRRRIIIIPPPPP!"
    I just stayed down, reached back and felt for the damage. Oh....My. My jeans had just ripped out. I don't mean a little hole...I mean "bottom-hanging-out" ripped out! I sat there for a minute and contemplated..........then got up, pulled my jacket down and made my way to the cutting table! No way was I leaving without my fabric!!
    On the bright side....I HAVE been collecting jeans for a denim rag quilt for years. Usually it is my Hubsters jeans. Now it will feature one of my casualty's too!!
    :)
    Have a fantastic day everyone!! :)

    The moral to that story is - always wear a sweater or jacket that you can take off and tie around your waist to cover your butt............

    At least you were alone and not with your daughter if she is young. She could have made it worse, by announcing that you just ripped out your pants and now everyone can see your "granny panties". :)

    Great save (laughter). Covering the backside and moving on was an awesome move. Thanks for sharing.

    I started laughing haven't quit laughing that would be my luck too.
    I'm not laughing at you. but with you.
    now you need to go shopping for new jeans and use the old ones in a quilt you will always remember those patches in the quilt and you will get a chuckle too.

    LMAO or better yet YOURS!!!

    I lost count how many times hubby has done that to majority his dress pants.. the worst one was when we were headed to a funeral for a wonderful quilting friend (I miss you Luise! :cry: ). We stopped for gas and as hubby was getting into the SUV we heard the the familiar sound.. Yup, you guessed it, we Had to make another pit stop and headed for the nearest mens store..
