Update your denim!

Update your denim

Although I'm frantically trying to prepare my two oldest girls to leave for college next week, I wanted to take a moment to think about some of the creative projects I've done this summer that I could share with you.  While I've been busy doing some larger projects around the house, I thought this post would be a quick burst of inspiration on updating your denim wardrobe for fall.  Embellished jeans are very trendy this fall.  Many of the trends I find too youthful for this mother of 5....sparkles, large holes, embroidered tattoo art....not for me!  However, some of the trends I find really fun!  

I was inspired by these images I saw on Pinterest and it just so happened that my favorite pair of jeans had a grease stain on them.  So....the perfect solution was to take some embroidery thread and sew a running stitch over the stain.  Voila!  My favorite jeans live on!  I chose to use a subtle blue thread, but you could have some fun with colors too.
