Busy Embroidery Machine

I haven't done to much this week.... except workout, cook... work at our business for a few hours.
I did sew another pair of dress shorts... burgundy color! Just what I needed... and I bleached and destroyed a jacket to look like a designer jacket I saw. I meant to take pics!!! but forgot...
I decided this week I needed to start doing up all those jeans and denim jackets I got at Goodwill and Rag a Rama. I mean, I got rid of half of my wardrobe in the Personal style project... there is some room in the closet and this will fill gaps quickly. Plus everything I bought was so cheap!! I came out way better doing this. I love denim and jeans!!!
Here's the first doing up project.... a pair of AE jeans... I used designs from Anita Goodesign Cowboy Couture.... and some studs I got from ebay! I love how these turned out and they might be my new favorite pair of jeans. The pictures on the design cd use rhinestones but I thought that was a bit to 'rhinestone cowgirl'.... haha! Plus unless you've completely ignored every fashion magazine for spring, studs are very in! And I was looking for ways to put them into my wardrobe without looking biker-ish. Studs on the back pockets and one front pocket too....



Next is a short sleeve denim jacket. I used Anita Goodesigns Asian Fusion for this project.


I might should have put the back design up higher... but I hate when I've done a design on the back and my hair hides it... thats why its lower.










Here's a little pic of the color palette for a major project I completed a month ago.... Pictures soon!!! I love blues...

Back to the garden! Its a beautiful day!!!!! Praise God for SPRING!!!!
Even if the flower pollen is making my allergies crazy!
This week I'm going to try and get another button up made, as well as some more 'doing up' denim projects!!!

Cool. Like the design on the jeans. I need to try her embroidery designs.Heck I need to embroider again, have not used this feature with my sewing machine in over a year probably.

I like the jeans design-- it reminds me of this faded-to-oblivion pair I've had since high school that has swirly embroidery up the legs. (I only wear them for work at the garden center. I'm thinking they may become a jeans pattern, as they're one of the only perfectly-fitting pairs I've got.) Also liking the fabric swatches- can't wait to see what you're doing with them!
