DIY - How to Embroider - Jeans
I’m sharing a tutorial on how to give new life to your jeans!
I recently started to embroider on denim and I’m loving it. The flowers that I usually embroider take many hours to make; so I wanted to show you a simple design that can be achieved in less time.
You will only have to use two stitches for this project; back stitch and satin stitch. I’ll post a link at the end of this tutorial showing you how to embroider these stitches.
This is the perfect project to work on while you’re watching TV - it will take a few hours. Or if you’re like me and enjoy silence every once in a while; unplug from all electronics and stitch. Embroidery is a great form of meditation.

I was trying to have fun with this project and wasn’t striving for perfection in my stitching. The result was a colorful piece of wearable art!
If you’re new to embroidery; here are the tutorials for the stitches that I used.
