Introduction: Upcycled Embroidered Jeans
Embroidered Jeans are the new rage this summer. They are almost everywhere, which inspired me to make my own diy version!
Step 1: You Will Need
A pair of jeans, Embroidery Thread, General sewing supplies
Step 2: Make the Design
Before starting with embroidery, roughly sketch out the design you want.
Step 3: Make the Petals
Embroider the outline of each petals as shown in the photos. This technique is similar to that of 'Chain Stitch'.
Step 4: Fill the Petals
If you are making a flower with narrow petals then this step wont be required. And if making broader petals, you might have to repeat this 3 or 4 times in each petal.
Step 5: Makethe Stems
This is a easy running stitch, you could add leaves around the stem using the same technique used to make a single petal.
Step 6: The Final Design
And Viola! You are ready to rock summer time with your custom embroidered jeans.
