D.I.Y Denim

Hello and Welcome,

This is my second ever blog post, so i really hope you enjoy it, whoever reads it! I'm already really enjoying blogging and i've been playing around with my design and layout but it's still quite simple. Please comment if you like the layout or have any advice on how to improve it!

Anyway, I have been really interested in fashion and textiles for a while, and came across D.I.Y. denim. Denim Jackets have been very popular this winter and I LOVE mine! D.I.Y Denim takes your old denim and makes it into something new and unique. I think this is so cool because you don't have to buy anything new, you can just sew, cut and create your old denim in to whatever you want! Here are some ideas I found…

So I had a go on my own denim jacket in a very simple way, but i think it makes my jacket unique to me! If you like this idea, why not try it yourself?

I needed: 
needle and thread
ribbon (recycled from an old hairband)
daisy patches (also recycled from an old hairband)
and, of course, your denim jacket

I found doing this quite easy, simply sewing on the decorations! 

1. Choose what to sew on and where (i chose the collar)
2. Place your decorations and pin in place, if you need to
3. Sew, sew, sew! Making sure its secure
4. Repeat on all your decorations

5. My finished D.I.Y denim jacket

I hope you enjoyed this post and will try this out for yourself! Please leave a comment on what you think, i would appreciate it so much!
