Step #2: Prepare Your Jeans 👖

Lay your jeans flat on a clean surface and smooth out any wrinkles with an iron. Use chalk or a fabric marker to outline your design on the jeans. This will give you a clear guide to follow as you work.

Step #3: Add Embellishments ✨

This next step varies on what design you choose.

Rhinestones and Studs:

  • Apply a small amount of fabric glue to the back of each rhinestone or stud.
  • Use tweezers to place them onto your jeans according to your design.
  • Press down firmly and let the glue dry completely.

Embroidery:

  • Thread your needle and tie a knot at the end.
  • Follow your chalk outline, using simple stitches like the running stitch or backstitch.
  • Incorporate different colors and types of threads to add depth and texture to your design.

Patches and Beads:

  • Position patches where you want them on the jeans and sew them on using a needle and thread.
  • For beads, use a strong thread and needle. Secure each bead individually or create patterns by stitching multiple beads together.

Step #4: Finishing Touches 💅🏻

Once all your embellishments are in place, inspect your jeans for any loose threads or glue spots. Trim any excess threads and clean up the design as needed. Let the jeans sit for a few hours to ensure all the embellishments are secure.

Step #5: Wear and Enjoy 😚

Your newly embellished jeans are ready to wear! Pair them with a simple top and your favorite western boots to let your jeans be the focal point of your outfit.
