Here at Sew Now, we all hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!
Following on from Francine Schokker’s handy guide to dressing up torn jeans in this issue, here’s a bonus way to jazz up unloved denim!
You can embroider or darn any shape or colour combination possible, you don’t even have to wait for a hole or tear to appear. Some shapes are more freehand and therefore potentially easier to sew, as you don’t have to stick to a geometric pattern. To illustrate, take a look at these leopard-print spots – these lend themselves very much to a fairly haphazard way of stitching. You could even embellish them further by adding beads, sequins or small buttons!
