I've got quite a cute-sized hole in the left knee of my newly-skinnificated jeans.  I don't really want to make it bigger, but I don't want to close it up either, as I quite like how it looks atm.  How can I invisibly stop it ripping further?

Well,

I had a similar challenge with my fiancee jeans..in my case I first sew with white thread (light jeans, so the thread got mixed with the jeans threads) around the cute hole (to avoid further opening)...I then added a patch under the hole (crotch area) and sew it by hand..to hide the stiches..It looks so cute now..you can see there is a hole..but what is undernearth is for privite eye only  Grin
I hope this give an idea..
