I was born in 1969 so I was a 70’s kid. Who remembers ponchos, huarches, braids, bell bottom jeans…and embroidered denim?!
My Memaw is a pretty awesome seamstress. She could make anything, or at least that was what I thought! She made our clothes, dolls, dress up clothes, dance costumes, booster and cheerleading uniforms, quilts, blankets…we were well dressed. I can’t remember if we got our embroidered jackets for a holiday gift, but we all got one. My sister’s and my jacket had patches embroidered on them. My dad’s had a beautiful design on the back. He still has it. Memaw even made me a little jean purse and embroidered my name on the front.

These memories inspired my digital card for the new Club Scrap Dungarees kit…

I found some very realistic embroidery photoshop actions and frayed denim brushes that worked great in Photoshop Elements 12. Love the effects! I recolored parts of the embroidery designs using the lasso tool and adjusting the hue/saturation. How’s that for a vintage flashback from the 70’s?!
