Minnie Mouse Jean Jacket

There’s nothing like a well-loved jean jacket. It’s timeless. But sometimes even timeless items need a little refreshing. In this project, I’ll teach you an affordable way to give a second life to an old jean jacket.

This project uses the Brother Innov-is NQ3500D. I’ll provide instructions for reproducing the design shown here. But your creativity is virtually limitless—the NQ3500D is programmed with so many embroidery designs, you can customize your creation any way you want. Let this serve as a guide to help you discover your own machine.
