nooj’s jeans

I decided (a while ago) I wanted to learn how to embroider. I found a great little book with some fun embroidery patterns from Sublime Stitching.  I found a couple of “space” theme patterns which seem like a lot of fun.

I had a heap of denim in the stash which I thought would be perfect as it has a fair bit of stability. The denim was from Darn Cheap fabrics as was cheap about $5 a meter and I barely needed half a meter.

I had fun learning. It wasn’t that hard and quite relaxing actually. I’ve never really been keen on hand stitching but I think I’ve had a turn around.

Anyway, I decided to make them into pockets for a pair of jeans for my youngest son.
I already had a pattern from Tie Dye Diva  which I have already made up in a check and they turned out really nice.

The front seemed a bit boring so I added some bias binding which I’m not sure I really like now but too late for that. I top stitched in red and green to add some colour and fun.

These pics are of Nooj when we went for a little stroll to our local beach in St Kilda.
He loves them which is all you can ask for.
