Jean jacket refashion

I decided to embroider an entire flower garden on the back of my coat using my sketches from my flora tarot project. 

This is my version of Queen Anne's Lace, she broke the ice so now I don't want to sleep and I want to sew all night long! 

I know if I do I won't be able to move my hands tomorrow so going to bed.

Jean jacket refashion

 John cut me a bouquet of the last of the zinnia's for the season. It was painful to see them go but he needs to close the pool next day off, so he cleared the bed this morning. A little secret, he is my flower arranger. I cannot do it! Tried for years but he has that touch. Ha.
 Finished the embroidery on the butterfly hankie and sewed it to the jean jacket. I like it but the coat needs more bling of course. I have more rhinestones to add and want to do some more embroidery on coat itself. 

 I like the way the bottom of the butterfly follows the line of the jacket. I attached it along the top edge but left the bottom loose. It hangs really nice.

Jean jacket refashion

This lint roller is the best tip I have learned for sewing this year. It grabs your loose threads really quick and keeps things neat.

Worked on the jacket all week. Finished the cuffs and added peace buttons everywhere. I have more rhinestones to add then I am going to start the back. Thinking of embroidered flowers every which way.

Little Miss Sunshine got really sick of the laundry room and requested a new location.
