Make a problem into a feature.
My jeans sometimes wear out where I put my housekeys in my pocket and my purse/bag rubs against the lump of keys in my pocket. Strangely this never wears out the actual jeans pocket...
Anyway, I had this cute fabric I found in a store in Brighton last year and I thought it'd be cute to have it peeking out.
I made very very tiny white stitches, trying to match the natural weave of the denim.
It's held up pretty well and as it wears a bit more, more of the alien peeks out.
