DIY Jeans with Pearl Embellishments

The pearl embellished jeans are the new sexy of the season and all the girls have been drooling over them. But did you know you can make them right at your home with just some basic sewing skills and a couple dozen of pearls?

Let’s show you how:

You will need:

  • A pair skinny Boyfriend jeans.
  • Plastic pearls in variable sizes and your favorite colors.
  • Needle, Thread, and Scissors



Steps:

  • You can stitch each pearl separately which is the best way to avoid losing a handful if threads go loose.
  • However, if you are in a hurry, stitch them in continuity.
  • You can also stitch larger pearls one by one and the smaller ones with a single thread.
  • Scatter the larger pearls across the area which you want to embellish and then fill in the area with smaller pearls while stitching them properly, not too tight or too loose.

So, go ahead and create a pattern of your choice with the pearls. For a peppier look make a consistent pattern while for an edgier look go with a scattered pattern. It is all up to your taste and style.

You will need:

  • A well-fitted pair of jeans.
  • Pom Pom trim in your preferred color
  • Needle, Thread, and Scissors

Steps:

  • Fold over the raw edge of the pom pom trim and start stitching it to the edge of your pocket seam carefully for a finished look.
  • Finish by folding the other edge of the trim and stitching it as well. Jeans can be really thick so it would be easier to stitch it along the edge of the seam. You can also continue the trim all the way down your jeans for a peppier look.
  • You can go for just the pockets or the side as well which is completely your own choice. Repeat the steps for the other leg as well.

Create a completely adorable and cute look with the pom poms and transform your old jeans into a completely new pair.

Bonjour, très belles réalisations possibles.
Mais je me pose une question quelle est la marque des baskets en jean car j’ai flashé dessus.
Je suis désolée si ce commentaire est hors sujet.

In the 70`s I embroidered my jeans and stitched slogan and picture patched all over them. My most loved jeans [501’s]

My workplace had a 60s day contest and I decorated a pair of jeans the way we did back in the day (but with perm markers instead of hand embroidery). I also fringed the hems not recalling how much work picking all those strings out was! I won the contest!

I did too! That was a popular thing to do to our jeans and also fringing the hems!

I’ve been doing hand sewing some reverse applique, on a pair of much loved jeans. to try to keep them that much longer. Putting darker denim, from another doomed pair of jeans, underneath the legs. I can foresee the entire thing covered in “graffiti” when I’m done.

Hi Mayra, cute ideas! Is there supposed to be an “after” pic of the pom pom jeans? Would love to see the finished result. The recycled denim ideas link isn’t actually a link, it won’t click through and only allows it to be pinned to Pinterest. Would you please fix?
