Customizing Jeans?

I was feeling the need to "stretch some new brain muscles" , so I decided to tackle a new project I had never attempted before.

I have granddaughters and all of the young ones I know are into jeans, so I bought a pair and had my first attempt at "ripping" out the side leg seams so I could get in there and attempt some embroidery work.

I decided Jeans fabric is really fun to embroider on and had really good luck with this project. I wasn't too thrilled with sewing those side leg seams back up , but I got it pulled off and it turned out to be some of the kids favorite gifts.

  1. That is so cool! Over there 'customising' jeans would involve hanging them up on the clothes line and shooting holes in them with a shotgun! lol
