Fun Ways to Update Your Old Denim

ACL is in the air….prep is well underway, and if you haven’t found the perfect outfit yet, no worries… might be right under your nose. Eli Winkleman of Craft joined us in the studio to show us how to update our denim with an old school technique. She showed us some ideas on ways to update your worn out denim and other items with patches, embroidery, beading and paint. She also showed us some ideas on creating your own patches using fabric swatches, and embroidering felt. For more on the classes and workshops at Craft, head to or stop by and see them at 4704 East Cesar Chavez. You can also reach them at 512-900-9957. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
