Sewing Denim: tips and embellishment tutorials

  • Serger Pepper 4 Craftsy - Customize jeans - Shibori patches

Being a fan of refashioning, I have a thing for denim. It comes in a variety of looks, it is widely available on each one’s closet and at the garage sales and barter shops, it’s easy to sew and to maintain (almost no need to iron it and that’s always a huge plus in my book!).

Are you asking me why?

All the things Denim

First of all, let me share my new Craftsy blog post, all about creative ways to embellish your jeans (some are for handmade and some are perfect even on your store-bought ones!).

It ranges from beading to painting, going through a few interesting techniques you’ve more likely never thought to apply to a pair of jeans.

Please take a look and let me know which one is your favorite one (or if you have any other embellishment techniques you’d like to share with us – we’re all ears- use the comment section below the blog post you can find here.)

And here is just one picture from the awesome Amanda’s (TurtleBirdies) personal take into the Justin pants… just so you can warm your mouth! See more -> here <-
