This is a picture of my first jeans jacket - and maybe my last. They aren't easy! I finally resorted to embroidering the unicorn as a patch and attaching it to the jacket. I couldn't get the thing to hoop because of the seams down the back, the thread frayed, the clips caught on the machine... but I like how it turned out. I don't know anyone who can wear it, but I got a deal on the jacket and figured I had paid little enough for it to use it for experimentation!

Has Tanza seen this yet?  She must not have - she hasn't posted in yet - she loooooves unicorns!

Yours came out very nice - and well worth the hassle.  Maybe next time instead of hooping it I would use a peel and stick to hold the jacket down.... that should do the trick - practice on some jeans though first - but peel and stick is a great thing for the unhoopable.

Where is the design from or did you do it up yourself?  It is sharp.

Thank you! The design was a freebie I got from Little Brown Jug Designs. I tried the sticky stuff, but it gooped my needle up. It isn't the cheap stuff, either. I did have trouble with the rolling and clamping of the material, too, so I probably gave up too soon. But in the end, I think I like that the design is on white felt instead of dark blue jean material.

That is exellent... good job. I find that emb on jeans is a pain in the rump as wel. Last project I did the stitches were all loose where I had to emb over a seam and it wasn't even a heavy seam. The peel and stick is not goopy. I'm pretty sure of that. My favorite is iron on backing. It's not cheap tho. It seems to hold everything exactly where you want it and just peels right off when you are done. There was 0 residue left on the fabric and no goopyness on your needle.

I have tried the sprays made especially for emb and they are too expensive and way way too messy. When I use a spray I buy it in the hardware dept at Walmart and it works just fine. No residue if you don't use too much and not smelly. 3M smells to high heaven and you can 't get it out. The smell or the spray.

Here's a company that I order from when I can. They have a iron on backing but I haven't tried it yet.I got mine at a Joans in a package.
Here's the backings.

Good luck...

That's a beautiful jacket!
