It is terrible to say that I was disappointed that the State of the Union Address was on tonight? I absolutely intended to veg out and watch TV after work tonight and the SOTU wasn’t what I had in mind.
So off to craft I went.
I had pinned this adorable tutorial a while ago. And in my New Years purging I realized that I had too many pairs of jeans. 2 went into the resale bin and one is going to the thrift store. And one is getting a makeover.
Although the original tutorial is great, I didn’t have the heatbond, so I experimented with some invisible thread and decided to sew the lace on.
So here’s what I did:
bought some lace (this is from hancock fabrics, the closest place for a quick fix for me)
Turned the jeans inside out and pinned on the lace. I left a little bit hanging over the edge so the jean hem wouldn’t show.
I used cream colored thread on top and the invisible thread in the bobbin. I picked the part of the lace that was the most dense and used a zig zag stitch. First at the top.
Then at the bottom.
I folded over the end and zig zaged up the seam. Turn those suckers inside out and you’re done!
As you can see the invisible thread isn’t completely invisible, but it’s pretty good!
Now go clean out your closet, get an old pair of jeans, and try it yourself!
