Embroidered Jeans

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Embroidery floss
  • Jeans
  • Needle
  • White colored pencil
  • Scissors
  • Instructions

    1. Mark Your Curve

    Using your white colored pencil, make small marks where you want your rainbow to begin and end on your pocket. Connect these two spots by drawing a curve. To perfect the curve of your rainbow, you can trace a frisbee, embroidery hoop or something else with a smooth curved edge.

    2. Thread Up

    Thread your needle, knot your embroidery floss and stitch along the curve using split stitches so your rainbow is a solid line. Once you’ve completed your first row, stitch two more rows of the same color right alongside it to create a nice, heavy line.

    3. Keep Stitchin’

    When you’ve finished your three rows, tie off the embroidery floss and snip off any excess. Repeat this process with all of your colors, until your pockets are bright and colorful!
