my source of inspiration. left to right : Sea of Shoes, Cheap Monday leather patch skinnies, William Rast patched jeans, Balenciaga S/S 2010This DIY also falls into the 'temporary DIY' categories as the DIY isn't permanent and it won't destroy your jeans AT ALL ! in fact, you can use this project on ANY kinds of apparels (tops, leggings, scarves, etc.).. I've worn it with some navy leggins on my previous post here :D
hope you enjoy this ! feel free to comment if you've got better suggestions :D
First off you'll need the following materials :Jeans (you don't have to worry about ripping the jeans out!), scissors, denim or any other kinds of STURDY fabric you like, safety pins, needle & thread. Optional : lighter.
First step : cut off some fabrics into rectangles/squares/whatever shape you want. you can one, two, three, or how many ever you want.
Next, fray the ends by pulling it out on random sections.
If you want the patches to stick together, then sew them together now. I sewed mine using visible white stitching to add more interest but you can sew yours however you want !
to add some vintagy worn out effects, take a lighter and 'burn' some bits of the fabric in the center. careful not to burn yourself ! check out the video on how to burn it.
Final step : pin your patchworks onto ur jeans ! if you'd like it to be permanent, then simply sew it on :D you can always take the stitches out if you're bored.
check this video below if you want the fabric to look like this :D
since these patches are removable, you can try sticking them onto different mediums ! :D and be sure to check out my patchwork leggings on this post !
