THE DENIM SERIES: DIY EMBROIDERED DENIM JACKET

HI GUYS! 

I LOVE DENIM JACKETS DURING THE SPRING-SUMMER SEASON


BECAUSE YOU CAN THROW THEM ON TOP OF ALMOST EVERYTHING AND THEY WILL LOOK GOOD AND WONT BE TOO HEAVY FOR YOU TO ROAST UNDERNEATH A JACKET. 

FOREVER21

I HAVE BEEN EYEING THE EMBROIDERED DENIM JACKET TREND FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, BUT THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE!! AHH THE LIFE OF THE POOR COLLEGE STUDENT LOL

I LOVE THE JACKETS THAT HAVE THAT UNIQUENESS TO THEM, ESPECIALLY WITH THE WORDING IN THE BACK AND SINCE I WAS NOT ABLE TO FIND SOMETHING OF MY PERSONAL LIKE AND BUDGET I WENT AHEAD AND DIYED MY OWN!

ANOTHER GREAT THING OF DIYING YOUR JACKET IS THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE THE EMBROIDERED PATCHES!


I CHOOSE THESE TWO PINK ROSES AND BOUGHT THEM OFF OF EBAY, THESE ARE IRON ON, SO STICKING THEM ON THE JACKET IS THE EASIEST PART.
FOR THE LETTERS I CREATED A TEMPLATE WITH THE WORDS ON PHOTOSHOP, YOU CAN ALSO CREATE THIS ON MICROSOFT WORD, REMEMBER TO  MEASURE THE JACKET AND PLAN WHERE YOU WANT THE WORDS TO BE AND USE THE 8.5 x 11 SIZE STANDARD PAPER.



THEN I CUT OFF THE LETTER ON THE INSIDE TO MAKE AN STENCIL, I PLACED THE STENCIL ON THE JACKET AND FOLLOWING THE STENCIL LINES I DRAW THE LETTERS. 



“THE HARDEST PART” (QUOTE ON QUOTE)  WILL BE SEWING THE WORDS INTO THE JACKET, I SAY QUOTE ON QUOTE BECAUSE I SEW THEM WHILE I WAS WATCHING THE RE-RUN OF THAT’S 70’s SHOW, YOU GUYS FEZ AND KELSO ARE MY FAVORITES… 
OK BACK TO THE TOPIC,


I GOT THE THREAD AT MICHAEL’S 
IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE PATIENCE TO SEW THIS I SUGGEST TO BUY THE EMBROIDERED LETTER PATCHES, EBAY AND AMAZON HAVE GREAT DEALS ON THEM. 
AND LASTLY I IRON ON THE FLOWER PATCHES INTO THE JACKETS, PROBABLY I WILL BUY MORE IN THE FUTURE, BUT FIRST I WANTED TO SEE HOW IT WOULD LOOK LIKE WITH A LITTLE LESS DESIGN. 



AND THAT’S ALL GUYS! 
IF YOU TRIED THIS THING PLEASE TAG ME ON INSTA (@STYLEJOURNALER), I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM! 
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY
