Hi my name is Olivia. I am Kristin's 14-year-old niece. I embroidered these jeans when I was twelve. I used embroidery floss that you can buy at any craft store. I came up with the design as I went, but it is probably easier to use transfer paper or a disappearing marker to sketch your design first. Some of the stitches that I used were the blanket stitch, the spider stitch, the outline stitch, French knots, the satin stitch, and the lazy daisy. If you are planning to embroider jeans, I recommend using a thimble while stitching, because it can be hard to get through the thick fabric. I really enjoyed doing these jeans, because I was able to show them to my friends and many people asked me if I bought them like that.
