Adding custom embroidery to a basic pair of jeans can really make an impact, but getting started with embroidery can also be incredibly intimidating. That’s why in today’s tutorial, we’ll be going over 3 easy ways to embroider your jeans even if you are an absolute beginner.
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the look of DIY Embroidered Jeans. There’s something so fun about creating a pair that looks exactly how you like and making something that is truly one-of-a-kind. But I guess that’s the joy in creating something individual that’s just for you. So without further ado, let’s get started:
Supplies You Will Need:

Idea #1 Add Detail To Front Pockets
Add a simple little flower garden that looks like it’s growing out of your pocket by placing a 3 inch Wooden Embroidery Hoop to the inside pocket. Use a backstitch (basic tutorial HERE) to create thin branch-like lines.
Use contrasting thread to create basic, delicate flowers on your tree using the same backstitch technique.
Idea #2 Add Color To Trim
Add color to your front pocket trims by wrapping embroidery thread around the curved opening. Start at the top and just work your way down until you have reached the other side of the pocket opening. Simple enough right?
Idea #3 Add Letters To Zipper Flaps
This one may just be my favorite. It’s funny, can be added to any jeans, and adds a level of humor that only you…. and your significant other will see. Add a funny phrase or word to the inside flap using the same basic stitch as the other ideas, but be sure to draw your letters on the fabric in advance so they stay uniform and legible.
I hope these 3 simple ideas get the creative juices flowing and inspire some fun little projects this week! Before you leave, be sure to check out my other Clothing Refashion Ideas or Join My 7 Days Of creativity Challenge.
