On the market today are iron on blue jean patches. You can find them in any sewing supply section of a department store or in any craft/sewing store such as Joanne Fabrics.
They are very inexpensive and take only a few moments to use for mending. You'll need the patches an iron and an ironing board.

Determine the size of the area you wish to cover. Cut 2 pieces out of the iron on patch approximately 1/2 inch bigger all round than the area you wish to repair.
Heat your iron to the highest cotton setting that it has.
Turn your jeans inside out and position the piece of patch over the area you need repaired. Place the iron on top of that piece of patch and iron it all round making sure to press the edges very well. Then turn your jeans right side out and repeat this process.

NOTES: if you want the repair to be as unnoticable as possible try to match the color of your patch to the color of your jeans as closely as possible additionally, use only the amount of patch plus 1/2 inch around to mend the area. The bigger your area to mend, is the bigger the patch should be and vice versa. Personally, I think patched blue jeans are very cool, everytime I see them I think to myself "that person really loves those jeans, they must be his/her favorite pair" and we all have a favorite pair of blue jeans don't we? I hope this helps.
