Dust off your sewing kit 

It’s easier than you think to put your own stamp on your denim, whether you’re breathing new life into an old pair of jeans or turning them into something entirely new.  

We love this idea from Levi’s for hand embroidery at home – it’s so simple to add some unique details and make your jeans stand out from the crowd. Watch the full video tutorial here and give it a go yourself.  

Levi’s has many more ideas for at-home personalisation too. Head to the Make It Yours page to discover tutorials from customising the back of your jean jacket to making a denim wallet.
