How to make a personalized baby jean jacket

Goodbye Gucci, hello Slutsky.

The Finished Product – now, we just have to get Haddie to wear it!

 

It’s jean jacket time! But, plain jean jackets can be so boring.

If you planned ahead, you would have bounced over to AliExpress (like I did) and bought the jackets and the patches well in advance. But, if you didn’t plan ahead (like 6 months ahead with AliExpress! ha), then head out and buy a jean jacket and some patches from any local store.

What you’ll need to make your personalized baby jean jacket

Making a personalized jacket is so easy. Here’s how it is done:

  1. Buy a jean jacket;
  2. Buy all the patches you want, including letters
  3. Grab a tea towel, and turn on your iron
  4. Layout some patches where you want them, put the tea towel over the patches, and iron for 30 seconds.
  5. Let cool.

The patches started to fall off my jacket pretty quickly, so I brought the jacket into a dry-cleaner to have them sewed on (note to self: buy a sewing machine and learn how to use it).

There’s also this product called Steam-a-Seam, which eliminates the need to sew. Maybe I’ll check it out for future endeavours.

Now – only if we could get Haddie to wear her awesome new jacket.
