Happy Friday! I have a quick project to share today!
A few years ago, I started watching thrift hauls on YouTube. I don’t go thrifting as often as I used to, but I do enjoy watching people thrift and seeing what people find. It’s also a way that I’ve been learning and discovering different brands that I normally wouldn’t look at. One brand that I kept seeing pop up was Johnny Was. Before these videos I had no idea who/what this brand was, but I have fallen very hard and very fast for this company. Their site is filled with beautiful colors and textures, and the most incredible embroidery. However, it is a decently expensive clothing company. So for right now, I am going to take advantage of borrowing the amazing Janome Memory Craft 15000 to create some of my own Johnny Was inspired pieces!
One day while I was thrifting at Plato’s Closet for pieces to embroider, I came across these camo print pants from Gap that reminded me of something I had seen on Johnny Was. And here’s the result!
This project was pretty easy with the use of the embroidery machine! All I had to do was seam rip the inner leg seam and put the pants in the hoop! After the embroidery was complete, I stitched the legs back up and my new-to-me pants were updated!
I did also hem these up a bit, just to fit better with the footwear I plan on wearing!
These are going to be a great wardrobe addition for Spring – which is only two weeks away! Yay! Here are some close-ups!
