Customised denim jacket

13 Sep

My denim jacket heirloom was looking a little sorry for itself, and to be perfectly honest, it rarely gets worn.

You know those crafty tid-bits that you buy, despite having no idea when you might quite use them, that’s exactly what I used. A bit of excess cutting of crochet trim I had foraged from a market stall, and a sew-on patch with my initial embroidered on it worked perfectly together.

The trim was sewn around the up-turned cuffs with a loop stitch, while the sew-on patch was fixed to the top left-hand pocket with a simple running stitch.

There’s something about crisp white and deep denim blue that makes for such a pretty contrast, interested to know what you think though…
