I have to admit that I’m enjoying this embroidery thing. It’s pretty relaxing and definitely more portable than sewing, even if I’m never quite sure that I know what I’m doing.

I finished up this project last night. I embroidered a geisha on a pair of my jeans, on the lower right leg near the hem. Not quite how I’d hoped it would turn out but it’s growing on me.

The design came from Urban Threads. I also purchased a sister design, a geisha standing in front of a tree with even more flowers. The boys helped me pick which one to use here. I’m glad I did this one. The other has more stuff at and above the geisha’s head. This one was challenging enough, since I left the jeans intact. At one point, I had both hands shoved into the leg from different directions to try to work the needle!

Now if I can just work up the nerve to wear these out of the house. After the temperature drops about 15 degrees, of course.

    I hope you wear them out, they are very nice. I have never thought of embellishing jeans I had, I love the look, just not the embellished jean price. Thanks for the idea.

    Hey hunny! I love the embroidery! You did a great job. Maybe you could do some capris or a skirt?? Isn’t it ridiculous how hot it is this year?? My kids are having to come in for the middle part of the day now, it’s just too HOT!
