Upcycled Denim Flower Embellishments

By:

If you're sick of wearing the same old boring clothes, then you'll love making your own easy sewing crafts out of scrap fabric. Save your old jeans and create Upcycled Denim Flower Embellishments from Melony Bradley. Add them to shirts or create a pretty necklace.

Materials:

  • Jacquard's Neopaque and Lumiere paints
  • Old jeans
  • Paint brush
  • Sizzix BigShot Die Cutting Machine
  • Layered flower die
  • Fabric glue
  • Jeweled brad
  • Cotton shirt

Instructions:

  1. I decided to cover an old pair with Jacquard's Neopaque and Lumiere paints, in random swatches.

  2. I painted one color in random places, letting that color dry before moving on to the next one.
     
  3. Once I had completely covered the jeans. I decided to cut them up and die cut them into layered flower shapes using my Sizzix BigShot Die cCutting Machine and a layered flower die. Oh, I also threw in a pair of old leather pants that I haven't worn in a decade or so...

  4. If you want to do this, alternate the leather pants (you could use an old purse or boots too) with the painted denim on the different shapes on the surface of the die.

  5. Use fabric glue, such as Aleene's Fabric Fusion to glue the pieces together. Free form cut a circle for the center and place a pretty jeweled brad in the center to hold all the pieces together.

  6. Boy! Does one pair of old jeans and leather pants make a ton of these flowers! Add to the whole effect by free form stitching around the edges of the flowers. You may need to trim the edges of the flanges of the brad so it does not hit your sewing needle if you get too close to the center.

  7. I'll bet you can think of all kinds of things to do with these flowers created from painted and sewn pants. The first thing that came to my mind was fashion.

  8. I sewed several to the neckline of a plain cotton top.

  9. I made some cuffs by lining up three or four flowers and sewing them together at the edges.

  10. I also created a statement necklace. Worn with the cotton top, its a look that is completely over the top.
