DIY Embroidered Signature Jacket

1-2Recently, I have noticed a huge peak in the trend of unique souvenir jackets or patchwork jackets. I decided to take my own approach on the customizable jacket trend and create this embroidered signature jacket! I am completely and utterly in love with the outcome and it only cost $6 to create (As long as you have a denim jacket already). Below is a video tutorial that I created which is much easier than photo and text in my opinion. I would love to hear your thoughts about what else you can embroider on a jacket (or any article of clothing)! Perhaps your initials on the front or a pattern on the cuffs? The possibilities are endless!

SUPPLIES: Denim Jacket, Embroidery Needle, Embroidery Floss, Scissors, Xacto Knife, Tape

    Hey drew, I am obsessed with everything you do! I really want to start a womenswear and lifestyle fashion blog. Can you give me some tips on how to get started and what are the best domain buying websites and webhosts. and I currenlty live in virgina so i dont have many building and cool backgrounds to go off of to take great outfit photos. Anything you can recommend for that as well!
    You are such an inspiration!

      Hello Ume! First off thanks so much for the kind words. To give you a few tips, I firstly use bluehost as my hosting service and domain service. I find that they provide amazing deals and their customer service is the best customer service I have ever experienced. Trust me, you can definitely find solid colored walls somewhere in Virginia. The back of a grocery store or the side of a department store. Spend an entire weekend scouting locations and writing them down for future reference. With all the editing apps these days you can also change background colors easily.
      Hope that helps and good luck on your endeavors!
      xo, Drew

    You made me remember a denim shirt I embroidery on years ago.
    On each cuff and down the center in between the buttons and a little on the caller. I also had a pair of silver look metal pices that clipped onto the corners of the caller. Sharp! 😉

      AHHH yes! I had clips on my old denim shirt as well (collar tips I believe they are called). So glad you enjoyed this post!

    I was wondering which style of lettering/ font you used for the jacket.
