You want to create a mock chenille effect, which you can do by sewing strips or shapes of fabric onto your pants, then roughing up the edges. It would probably be easiest to create the chenille first, then sew it to your pants. Layer at least 3 layers of various shades of green fabric. I’d recommend flannel, for the fray factor, and make sure it’s green on both sides (or at least not too white on the back). Sew diagonal (diagonal is important for fraying) parallel lines 1/2″ apart, joining all of the layers together. Cut through the top layers – do NOT cut the bottom layer! Use a stiff bristle brush to fray and fluff up the edges. When it looks like you want it to, cut out your shapes and sew it to your pants.
