I upholstered my couch with used denim jeans a while ago and have had a couple of holes show up.  
Denim wears out whether your butt is on the inside or the outside of the pants, I learned.  Smiley
I patched the first hole with a denim patch but decided to darn the newest hole with embroidery floss.  I hope this is the right place to post.  It's not as fancy as the other work here but it is needlework.

I'm very happy with it and just hope it lasts a while.  I think I'll patch any more holes that show up this way and maybe in a few years the couch will be way more colorful.

Very effective darning. It seems to be a waning art these days.
I love your idea of doing other mending like this: it should make the sofa glow in time to come.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
