Seems like patches are everywhere since spring of last year. And they don’t look like they’re going anywhere. One of the more popular incarnations of this trend are the floral patched jeans. Watch this video to see how you make your own and scroll down for more detailed instructions.
A Pair of Jeans
You can also keep a cotton cloth handy for using over the patches while you iron.
Step 1: Place the patches where you want them. It might help to wear the jeans and mark the spot where you want the patches to finally be.
Step 2: Using an iron on its hottest setting, press down on each patch for 20 seconds at a time. Repeat if necessary. Using a cotton cloth over the patches while you iron will protect your jeans and your patches. Do not use steam for this step. Repeat on the other leg.
Tip: Let the glue cool before moving your jeans around or wearing them.
That’s it. You’re done!
Have you ever wandered into a store and found a beautiful jacquard trim or a vintage trim, but didn’t know what you could use it for? Your jeans of course! This DIY is cool because of its semi-permanence. Cuff ’em and show of the trim or un-cuff ’em and have your jeans back and no one’s the wiser. Watch the video below to see how to make them and scroll down for more details.
A Pair of Jeans
Step 1: Measure the bottom of your jeans. Add two inches to that and cut the trim to that measurement.
Step 2: Apply glue to the end of the trim and fold it over once at about an inch. This is to hide/seal the frayed end.
Step 3: Apply a line of glue to the jeans at the seam and at the top and bottom of the cuff. Start glueing the trim all around. E6000 takes some time to dry and it helps if you don’t jostle the fabric too much.
Step 4: Repeat Step 2 when you get to the end and glue down the end to the jeans.
That’s it, you’re done!

Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive.

We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.

I have been cuffing my jeans ever since the weather began to warm up in Manhattan and when I spotted these jeans from H&M’s upcoming Fall 2012 collection, I knew they would make the perfect DIY to add to my collection!
Medium blue skinny jeans
Seed beads (Mine are the cry luster colored beads from M&J Trimming)
1. Put jeans on and fold the cuff so it’s about 1.5 inches above your ankle. The cuff itself should be 2-3 inches long.
2. Using a couple stitches around the jeans, stitch the cuff to the jeans so it doesn’t unfold.
3. Split the number of large jewels that you have in half. Sew half individually onto the left cuff and half on the right. Make sure to space them evenly around the entire jean cuff.
4. Glue about 10-15 rhinestones to each cuff with the E6000 glue. Let rhinestones dry for about 30 minutes.
5. Fill in open gaps by sewing in the pearls. I used about 30 on each jean cuff.
6. Fill in any other open gaps you may find with your seed beads. I created loops of 5 beads each.
And there you have it! Cuff your jeans and expose this beautiful hidden treasure!
