The Happy Drummer went home very late last night, wearing his most newly embellished jeans, a white suede design on faded black denim. He'd stopped by to pick them up and was wearing the previously done pair, a tribal cross motif on black denim. That pair had a need of a little bit of additional stitching, so he tried on the new pair for a photo and wore them home, grinning all the way out of the house!
So...here are the last 2 pairs, not the best of photos, but something at least!
Mostly front view of right leg, barely showing motif on side at ankle.
The newest pair, closeup front 3/4 view and full view. They look a little wrinkly, but I think a good washing will settle the satin stitching into the fabric and a good pressing afterwards should be all they need to look pretty good. The white fabric is an inexpensive faux suede. Next time, I'd do them in Ultra-suede, regardless of the cost. The faux suede did tend to ravel a bit.
Back view, showing just how far around the ankles the design actually wrapped.
Next on the agenda, a chance to take some ideas that have been on my mental back burner for a while and play with them...something involving eyelets and lacing, something with some chain maille perhaps...fun!
