Denim was made for Flowers

take a casual, thrift store, Denim Jacket from plain and ordinary
fancy and fabulous

 work out a design and then transfer it to your project

an iron on transfer tracing pencil can be used,
 but remember the design will be ironed on in reverse
lay a piece of transfer paper under the design and over top of your fabric
 go over the design with a ball point pen to transfer the pattern
or just draw the design on free-hand with a pen

use an embroidery hoop and floss
I used all six strands of floss  

Adding button hole stitches along the seams and
 around the edges of pockets looks nice

Remember back in the day when we appliqued our bell-bottomed denim jeans. 
 I think I am old and quirky enough now that I can wear old jeans --boot-cut--
all decked out.
  I'll post pictures when they are finished.

  1. I think I was always "old and quirky" , and I think I like being quirky. Not everyone can do it. We're lucky huh!
    Can't wait to see the pictures! Happy Easter!
