This morning I thought that I would try this. So I pulled out a pair of jeans from my fabric pile and was just about to cut them up when I realized that there was nothing wrong with the jeans and they looked pretty new. Oops!! They were my dh jeans just waiting for a new button. Oh well, I will have to find some other jeans to use.
