Waaaaay back in the day I had a pair of jeans that I hand-embroidered and embellished with love beads and star studs. Remember those? Well fast forward about 40 years and I'm at it again. I keep thinking that machine embroidering on jean pockets means making new jeans, but it occurred to me that I can just embroider on a pair of jeans I already own. I have had these basic Gap jeans for years so I thought they would be a good pair to try on in case things go horribly wrong.
Embroidery Library. I just love the turquoise in it, although I want to do another pair replacing the turquoise with black. I think White on white would work as well.
I was a little concerned about taking off the pockets and then reattaching them without it looking like a "home" job, but I had just the right colour of jean top stitching thread on hand and I think it turned out alright.
I am very early in the embroidery learning curve but I imagine the colours are off because the pattern was designed for a different machine. The pocket pattern above, even though it is shown as a turquoise on the pattern site, shows up as a very dark teal on my machine screen and on my Brother program on the computer.
