I'm on a roll! My second pair of holey jeans have been jollied up! For this pair, I went with an ORANGE theme:
Having seen the idea on Pinterest, I wanted to do a reverse appliqué star, so with a fabric pen and help from one of Little R's wooden shapes I sketched a big star...
... cut it out, and blanket stitched the stripy fabric underneath. I added a sprinkling of stars for good measure too.
I'm quite pleased with that one!
Since all that blanket stitching took AGES, I went with a simpler idea for the smaller hole on the other side. Popped some orange fabric behind and did some starburst stitching. In fairness, THAT took quite a while too!
Looks rather cute though, I think!
So there we are. A second pair of jeans rescued!
I'm actually looking forward to choosing some jeans to wear tomorrow - now that I have the choice of THREE functional pairs!
NB: I am a little concerned that my hours of hand-stitching might go to waste, since I didn't use two layers of fabric in my patches...I don't want THEM to wear through too... at least not too quickly.
