TUTO - EMBROIDERED JEANS
It's back to school time! We're starting with a little DIY makeover with this very simple and very accessible tuto: grow flowers from your pockets! 🌞🌼
Here's the perfect tutorial to get you started in embroidery if you've always dreamed of it, or to indulge yourself with this quick project if you're already well-versed in needle and thread.
👉Forthis DIY you need:
- a garment with a pocket
- embroidery thread
- a needle with a large eye
- a Frixion Ball-type erasable felt-tip pen
Start by drawing your flowers as you like above the pockets, extending the stem a little inwards. Choose simple flower shapes.
First, we'll embroider the stems: take the embroidery thread as it is on the skein, i.e. 6 strands, thread it through the needle, and fold it in half to make 12 strands in all.
Follow your design by embroidering in stem stitch! This will create a volume that makes the whole thing quite realistic.
Continue with leaf embroidery: fill them with small V-shaped stitches, this time with 4 strands.
As for the heart of the flower, make it using small knot stitches (2 strands) held tightly together.
Finally, finish with the petals: again take the skein as is (6 strands), and embroider them, going back and forth 3 times for each petal.
Multiply the flowers as much as you like!
And ... TA-DA !!!
