DIY Lace Inset Jeans. -- Have a rip or tear in your jeans? Patch it up with lace! Or, to get this look, use scissors to create a horizontal rip. There’s very little sewing required, and instead of using a sewing machine, you could even create a sewing pattern by hand that would look really nice with the lace.
Wear your heart on your sleeve. Transform any sweater into a romantic fashion statement by tweaking store-bought elbow patches ($7.98 for two; mjtrim.com). Simply cut a heart-shaped pattern out of scrap paper (ours measured approximately 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"), then use that pattern to cut out a heart from each patch. Lastly, hand-sew the patches to the backs of your sleeves with a simple blanket stitch in a darker shade of thread. - CountryLiving.com
