Crop circles on my butt . . .

I am wanting to make another pair of Jalie jeans and am playing around with embroidery on the pockets. I plan on using the Font Engine component of Embird to make my design. Right now, I'm leaning toward the Crop Circle Dingbat font from dafont.com. I particularly like the bottom one of my samples. The others are too small and I was experimenting with stitches. Not only do I like the shapes but I would love to have some crop circle-esque on my butt. It would make me smile every time I saw it. I was thinking too that it might be fun to put some sequins or small beads in those circles.


What do you guys think??

I love the crop-circles, they're so unique and NOT boring!!!
Ever tried embroidery on another part of the jeans? My 5 yr old son has a pair of classy shorts (from Germany) that has embroidered designs down the leg, in almost the same colour as the fabric so it's very under-stated.

I'm kinda feeling the crop circles too! It's a cool concept and a neat idea for a pocket design.

Great idea to add a little bling- that's the "in" thing you know?! Crop circles are a go.

I like the crop circles. Not sure about the sequins but small beads might work. Have fun with it!

Hi Dawn,
Two thumbs up on the circles. I like the idea of bling as well, but I had a bad experience with beads on a pair of jeans. I put a small rip in my drivers seat getting into my car. It's kind of a bucket seat and a bead caught on a seam in the seat. I still wear my beaded jeans but I am more careful when I sit. I can't wait to see your Jalies. That pattern is in my queue. I even have the fabric. Just gotta get the time!

I am so stealing the crop cirles idea...to put on something! They look cool!

I have a pair of 7 for all Mankind jeans that have eensy teeny tiny beeds and also some metallic thread on the back pockets? Maybe that's an option if the beading doesn't work out. I'm starting my first pair of Jalies this week, I hope.

Love the big one! only your little butt could handle bling & a bunch of eye grabbing circles. :P What about some hot fix crystals instead of beads or sequins? (thinking about your car upholstery now, which I never would have until I read the comments!)

Love the circles! :)

Try making them bigger than the pockets, so the design goes past the edges of the pockets, so they don't look like targets.

The sequins would be a perfect design touch.
