Found myself in my sewing room again. Boy, it felt good!
I forget how much I love sewing. It's very relaxing. Also like being able to post my work on Instagram and getting feedback. But the best feeling is getting to share cool DIY projects with you guys! Like this one.
Jean Jacket Back Patches - You of course can spend $50-100 on a jacket like this at places like Top Shop or Nasty Gal OR you can make one yourself for less than $15
1. Find a great inexpensive jean jacket with a single panel back. It's easier to cut and sew with. This jacket was $4.50 found at deseret industries.
2. Cut the back panel out.
3. Use the back panel you just cut out to get the ideal shape for the patch you'll be sewing in the back. When cutting, leave yourself some room for sewing a seam. Give yourself about half an inch of extra space.
(Side note- I found this great fabric at Stitches on Cap Hill. It was $7.99 a yard. Best part about this DIY you can use any pattern)
4. Pin the patch in places.
5. Take your time and being to sew. Remember to remove the pins!
6. Best for last - Wear & Share!
Ta-da! There it is. It's truly that easy. I am already working on a new design for my boyfriend. New jean jacket and a whole new fabric type. This DIY is interchangeable and really all about making it your own.
