Some VOS (Very Old Stitching)

I came upon these photos of some shorts I embroidered back in 1975, right after I learned how to embroider. Amazing that I still have these shorts, isn't it? I sure can't fit in them anymore. I remember how hard it was to stitch through the thick denim, especially with the french knots and satin stitches! Did you ever embroider on denim jeans, shorts, or perhaps on that old chambray shirt? Ahhh, the 70s. Was it really 30 years ago?

    I do vaguely remember stitching on a pocket of some shorts. I did do an extensive embroidery on a western-style shirt for my dad. It was stitched all across the back yoke and a bit on each front yoke as well. I was so thrilled whenever he would wear it.

    Oh Wow, these were such a joy to see. I use to embroider on my jeans in the 70's and how I wish I still had a pair. I know they wouldn't fit me, lol but I would love to see them. What fun that was. I think I am going to have some embroidery fun with my granddaughters jeans. She is just 3 but I think she would like them. bghngt
