You can do this too!!
In this video, I am going to show you how to repurpose old ripped jeans into show-stopping lace embroidered jeans! I am using embroidery designs from Angela Wolf’s Lace Collection 1 for the designs – and I create my own design using elements from the collection so I can strategically place the embroidered lace on the jeans to cover up the tear. The lace is finished completely in the hoop and then you can use your sewing machine or hand sew the lace onto the jeans. You can embroider directly on the jeans, but it is difficult to do on skinny jeans unless you take the seam out. I used some tulle and water-soluble stabilizer (WSS). Well, I should have used tulle or organza, but I was trying to work on a budget and used “fabric” from the Dollar store, Dollarama. I thought it was organza, but it turns out to be different. At the machine, this fabric looks great, but not so great when I needed to trim it out. Embroidery Lace takes a long time to stitch out – but the gorgeous results make it worth the time you spend stitching. Angela Wolf’s Lace collection is simply gorgeous! Once your designs have finished stitching on your embroidery machine, you can simply cut it out. I did run into some issues with the fabric that I picked out – it turns out that this fabric works for embroidery, doesn’t work for detailed lace for trimming the lace. It was difficult to get it trimmed close to the embroidered lace. If you use tulle or organza you will find this step much easier to complete. Once you have everything trimmed out, you need to soak the lace to get rid of the water soluble stabilizer (WSS) from the back of the lace – and all you will be left with is the tulle and the embroidered lace. Once your lace is dry, you can place it on your jeans. I placed the lace that I designed over the hole in the jeans – to fix the jeans and to give the ripped jeans some strength. You can use your sewing machine with matching thread to sew the lace on to the jeans, or you can hand sew the lace around the edges. Use a zig zag or single stitch to follow the outline of the lace. I used a zig zag stitch in different directions to reinforce the rip in the jeans and because I am using the same thread, it doesn’t show at all! MACHINE EMBROIDERY EDUCATION. FOR EVERYONE. LEARN.
