Before I washed the jeans….
After I washed them:
I lost some of the detail and half of the beak.
On the body, where the threading is thick, it knotted into the denim better.
I think I will try to repair the missing bits, and maybe iron something over the inside of it, or apply some liquid fusible webbing and see if it continues to hang on.
Not too bad overall. 🙂
