DIY Jeans

I'm wearing my DIY 501's today.  I was able to sew all of the patches on by opening the seams on the side with a seam ripper.  I sewed leather patches on with my old Elna machine and a leather needle–it was quite fun.  I'm wearing my jeans with my Dries sandals, Christopher Ross Lion belt, and thrifted cardigan.  The dogs decided to join last minute…..

    I love the eclectic mix of your outfit! And those Dries are amazing…the mixing of different materials on the straps are a perfect match for your jeans!

    You could sell these jeans…is “sell” the word I’m looking for…maybe it should be “sale”. Who the hell knows. The jeans are fantastic. I must find my big ass gold lion belt buckle. I know it’s around here somewhere!

    I just started cutting out my squares of t-shirt for the DIY skirt, now I need to do a pair jeans. At least my sewing machine will get some use.

    your outfit is perfect to me with the scarf. I love that you’re a bit eccentric with your style but still restrained and controlled, very elegant.

    I have this pair of jeans that I want to fix up a little. On the back pocket, there is a heart stitched in brown thread more or less the size of a Ritz cracker. The denim has a hole in it, right in the middle of the heart. I was thinking that I want to cut the shape of the heart out, and sew a patterened material inside the pocket, so the pattern shows through the heart. I don’t want the stitches from the part I sew on to be visible from the outside, so how should I do it? Any tips?

    Health is the best treasure (which) a man can possess. Money can do many things, but it cannot buy happiness. However, so long as man has good health, he can enjoy the pleasures of human life. Thank you so much for this tutorial! Red velvet is my husband’s favorite, so he LOVED the heart surprise in the middle when he cut into his birthday cake last week πŸ™‚
