I have a pair of jeans that isn't completely SOL yet, but they're getting there. They're threadbaren in some spots so I've been reinforcing them in areas like around the crotch *cough, cough*. There are other spots that are well worn that are more visible, so I thought, why not fix them with embroidery! Only problem there is that I can't think of anything to embroider that doesn't remind me of the jeans my mom stuck cat iron-on transfers on way back in the day. (Ah the 90's.)

I really don't have any ideas on what to stitch on there, and it'd be all free hand. No fancy sewing machine to do it for me.

Ya guys got any suggestions? I'd really appreciate it.

Muchas gracias, fellow craft fanactics

On the shelf under my sewing machine is a piece that I embroidered on my jeans when I was in high school.  I stitched flowers up the outside seem of the pant legs when they were threadbear.  You can't give up on the right pair of jeans! 
I love flowers, but that is me.  They work as vines and as singles, or a bouquet.

I can't wait to see what you will do.

OH or a dragon, with its tail wrapping around your leg!  That would be cool!  I just read a post about a dragon.  Sorry that seemed random!
