The super patched jeans

















hello again! another update of zombification! these were a pair of nudie jeans that suffered from the classic nudie crotch tear. i don't mean to denigrate the awesome jeans that nudie makes but they do tend to rip in the crotch after a few years. and that was part of my motivation in resurrecting them, as they had served me loyally for so long.

i managed to repair the crotch using a combination of iron on patches and hand stitching, and then went to work on the fun part, decorating them! i added a hand drawn zombie face (from free clip art, an excellent resource for the similarly creatively challenged out there) on a white iron on patch to the back right pocket and got some iron on letters from the sewing rooms, and though i realised (from later efforts) that you have to make sure to apply them carefully i didn't mind the somewhat distressed effect that was created. after this, i was confidant enough to skinny my own jeans and the next project should be more inspiring to you!
