Hey friends! So excited to bring you guys these DIY No Sew Boho Embellished Jeans! I am IN LOVE with how they came out and they cost less than $20 to make! I am trying really hard to be conscious of where my clothing comes from and buy from ethical brands and thrift/up-cycle when and where I can!
I saw these embellished jeans ^^ at Anthropologie, selling for $195 and I thought I could make them for much less! So here is my DIY spin on them! I took an older pair of jeans that still fit me but were way too short so they were just sitting in my closet (I have a hard time letting go of things—clearly haha). So I thought these would be perfect to use for this, then I hit up good-ol Joann Fabrics and found some neutral fabric that I loveee and pom pom trim and got to it! This is a quick and easy, no-sew DIY.
You’ll want to start by making sure there are no major creases in your fabric. Iron before starting if needed!
You’ll want to cut your fabric to the desired width. I did mine about 5 inches from bottom to top. The fabric I used was semi-translucent so I folded it in half. (5 inches once I folded it)
Then you will want to cut your fabric to the needed length. To avoid frayed ends showing, you’ll want to fold over the end of the fabric where you will be gluing, so cut a little longer to for accommodate this
Once your fabric is measured out, start to glue your fabric onto the jeans. I started from the top edge so the fabric was even all the way around. If it gets uneven at the bottom, you can simply trim off any access before you add the pom poms (or whatever edging you chose).
Continue to glue all the way around your jeans. From the top to bottom. Once you have your fabric in place, its time to add your trim! You will want to off-set your trim a bit so it hangs off your jeans to avoid seeing any edges. (See the bottom left photo above)
Once you have everything glued in place, let it sit for at least 24 hours to completely dry. Then ta-da :) you are all set to wear your new jeans!
No life isn’t this perfect, I wish I had dogs following me around ready for a photoshoot at any time. But these two little nuggets just happened to be walking by while I was awkwardly sitting on the ground in the middle of the sidewalk and they decided to stop by for some sniffs and a quick kiss ;)
I think these might be one of my favorite projects ever!! Hope they inspire you to create some of your own!
