Make your own patch jacket


Patch jackets. I've seemed to have started seeing them everywhere, and I'm slightly obessessed. I got a beautiful bomber from Zara with some embroidery (see here) and I've wanted patches and designs ever since.

Obviously being me, the ever-ambitious crafter, I decided to attempt one myself and collected a variety of patches from eBay and other places. I used this khaki denim jacket from Topshop which I actually only bought last month, but which I've gone off slightly since I bought it - makes me look a bit awful...


You will need:
An iron
Assorted patches
A plain jacket


Step 1) Collect your patches and jacket - these are mine! Most are from eBay from China, but the guy with the pencils is from my Papergang box, and the deer and small butterfly are from Sass and Belle.


Step 2) Decide on your arrangement and iron on! I used a high heat, no steam for about 30 seconds on the patch until secure...aaaaand you're done! I wouldn't tumble dry it or anything but now you've got a brighter, more fun jacket.


The back....(oopsie iron marks - always use an ironing board!)


Tada! A super easy way to upgrade a plain old jacket.

I'm definitely going to be adding to this over time - here are some patches I have my eye on from some small businesses:

Tweet me yours if you try it!
