Cute up a pair of ripped jeans

 
The holes in these jeans were original to the new pair Maja Blomqvist bought. But when she got them home, she wasn’t so thrilled by the look. Inspired by crocheted tablecloths, Maya applied crochet motifs to cover, close and decorate the holes, transforming the jeans into a one-of-a-kind favorite.
