What you need:
a pair of ripped jeans to embellish
some sand paper
a piece of lace or fabric of your choice
iron on transfer paper
(If you have never used an iron or sewing machine before please be sure to ask for adult assistance)
First cut the rip in the jeans a little bit bigger and sanded the edges to give it a more natural look.
Then cut out a piece of lace and a few small strips of iron on paper which will go on the edges of the lace. Make sure not to cover all of the lace with the iron on paper or all kinds of debris will stick to it once you peel the paper off.
Turn your jeans inside out and place the lace and transfer paper in the right spot. Iron on and let cool completely before removing the paper.
Be very careful when you turn the jeans back out because the iron on bond won’t be very strong. Now your lace should stay in place well enough for you to easily sew around the edges with the machine.
I used a zig zag stitch and really like how it turned out. I also accidentally sewed over the pocket a little but it’s still usable so it wasn’t a big deal.
That’s it! You just gave a ripped pair of jeans a whole new life!
