You’ll need a pair of jeans, a pencil, scissors, and an iron. If you want to be extra careful, you can also use a sewing machine to sew the holes shut after you cut them.
Denim is a sturdy cotton twill fabric with a rough surface that is usually blue or black. It was originally made for work clothes but is now also used for jeans, skirts, and other clothing. Denim is usually 100% cotton but can also be found in a blend with elastane or polyester.
You will need a pair of scissors to cut the holes in your jeans. Choose a sharp pair of scissors so that you can make clean, straight cuts. If you do not have a pair of sharp scissors, you can use a rotary cutter or a craft knife.
Cutting the Holes
There are a few things you need before you get started. You need a sharp pair of scissors, a hole punch, and a marker. You will also need a pair of jeans that you don’t mind cutting holes into. Once you have all of your supplies, you are ready to get started.
Decide where you want the holes
The first step is to decide where you want the holes. If you want them to be symmetrical, you can mark them with a pen or chalk. If you want them to be random, you can just eyeball it. Once you’ve decided where you want the holes, put the jeans on and use a marker to make a dot on the jeans where you want the hole to start.
Make a small cut to start
Use small, sharp scissors to make a cut at the top of the hole. The smaller the cut, the less likely it is to fray. If you’re not sure how big you want the hole to be, start small and make it bigger later.
Work slowly and carefully so you don’t accidentally make the hole too big. Once you make a cut, it’ll be more difficult to make the hole smaller again.
Cut around the hole until it is the size that you want
Use a pair of scissors to cut around the hole until it is the size that you want. If the hole is large, you may want to cut it into a smaller shape, such as a heart or a star. You can also make other shapes, such as circles or triangles.
If you’re following along at home, you should now have a pair of jeans with two symmetrical holes cut out of the knees. If not, don’t worry, we’ll walk you through it. Just make sure you have a pair of jeans that fit, and a marker or chalk to draw the lines.
Try the jeans on to see if the holes are in the right place
Now that you have the holes cut out, it’s time to try on the jeans and see if they look good. If the holes are in the right place, then great! If not, you canalways sew them up and try again.
If the holes are too big, you can sew them up
If you accidentally cut the holes too big, don’t worry! You can easily sew them up to make them smaller. First, cut two pieces of fabric that are slightly larger than the hole. Then, place the fabric over the hole and sew it in place. If you want, you can also stitch around the edge of the hole to make it look nicer.
If the holes are too small, you can make them bigger
If the holes are too small, you can make them bigger by using a seam ripper or small scissors. Just be careful not to rip or cut the fabric around the hole. If the holes are too big, you can sew them up with a needle and thread.
