Customised Denim Jacket

When I saw this article about customised denim jackets in a magazine a few months ago it reminded me that I had an old denim jacket stored away which a friend gave to me years ago. I’d never worn it and was thinking of taking it to the charity shop, but when I saw this I decided to buy a few patches from eBay and have some fun!

It’s really easy to iron on the patches, you just need to remember to turn the steam off. Some of the patches adhered to the jacket better than others – the spiky edges of the pop art patch didn’t stick completely, but it’s not that noticeable. I chose patches that reflect the things I like – cats, Paris, fashion, and my favourite super hero…Wonder Woman!

The back was looking a little bare in comparison to the front so I put the AC/DC patch in the middle. AC/DC are my favourite band so it seemed fitting to give it centre stage, so to speak. I may add a few more small patches to the back if I see some that I  like.

What do you think to the customised denim jacket trend? Do you like to alter things to your own taste? Let me know in the comments!
