Rockin Jeans

These were really fun to make!!!!!


 

Here is what I started with....

.....a pair of jeans with a hole in the knee.  I love these jeans, but not the hole so I decided to do something to cover it. I  didn't want to put a patch on them so I did an applique instead.  I  googled guitar images and found one that i liked the shape of. My husband enlarged it and printed it out for me. I  cut out each piece and traced it on fabric and fusible webbing. I cut them out and ironed the fusible webbing onto the fabric.  Then I pieced it all together on the jeans and ironed it down. Then I sewed around the edges of each piece.  I used silver metallic thread to sew the strings.


Now Dakota has an awesome pair of jeans!!!! 
 And I didn't have to go buy another pair to replace the torn up ones.

That is WAY cool! I have a hard time getting my sewing machine to sew inside the jeans - how do you do that?

You have to open one of the seams. I open the outside seam because it's easier for me to sew back without being able to tell I ever did anything to it.
