Has anyone had any success in mending slightly torn shorts?

What works, what doesn't? Is it even possible to do a half decent repair? Can't quite bring myself to throw out a fairly new pair of shorts that have been scuffed (small holes) by contact with the ground!

I've repaired a couple of pairs with nylon thread and a needle. Just sew up the hole...

......just sew up the hole with a simple overhand stitch. Lycra stretches like crazy so nothing fancy has to be done. My old faithful tights are a mass of life-saving sewing.
