Embroidering… Personalized Levi’s

Birthday present time!

These jean’s gave me a little bit of a hard time. I’ve never embroidered before! But I’ve sewn… so I gave it a whirl.

My first layout put the personalized tags inside the button fly. Taking my cues from Lucky Brand Jeans, the vertical tag worked great but the wrap around tags were way too visible and bulky.

So, I ripped out the top two and, after much contemplation, reinserted just one shortened tag. It might still be too bulky. I don’t know until he tries them on.
