Restyle Day 7 – Customised

Restyle The Kids Are In Trouble

Denim was a no brainer for the customise prompt. I can stitch and hem but I’m not that skilled on a sewing machine so I knew that denim would be an easy option to try to make my own. Until of course, I decided to customise a denim vest with a million teeny tiny beads.

After some Googling, I stumbled across this tutorial. I’d already removed the sleeves from the jacket that I’d picked up and I fell in love with the pearl and bead trim.

Although time consuming, it wasn’t that hard. Here’s how I did it:

Step 1: Sew or hand stitch some trim to the area you want to attach the beads to.

Step 2: Lay out your large beads so you can get some even spacing between them. When you’re happy with the layout start stitching them on.

Step 3: Sew on your smaller beads to fill in the gaps.

Tip: I used a cotton that was a similar colour to the denim but I think it was too dark for the beads I chose. If you can’t find a happy medium, I would probably go for something closer to your bead colour.
