I have a bit of an obsession about owning one-of-a-kind pieces. The easiest way to get a one-of-a-kind piece without breaking the bank is to make your own.
I altered this plaid bomber jacket I found thrifting by adding some embroidered floral patches.
It was dead easy.
I bought the patches at Michaels. They are actually iron on patches however they didn’t stick very well to the tweed of the jacket so I ended up having to hand stitch them on just to make sure they were well secured. I hate a DIY that look cheap and falls apart a week later.
You can buy loads of floral embroidered patches online if they don’t have any at your nearest craft store.
This bomber jacket is by a Taiwanese designer by the name of Stephane Dou. One of the many joys of thrifting is you never know what you are going to find. As soon as I saw the jacket I knew immediately it was higher quality. A pro thrifter starts to have a sixth sense when it comes to finding quality amongst the garbage.
It was a total fluke that the patches ended up working with colours of the jacket. They clash but in the nicest way.
DIY Embroidered Bomber Jacket Tip
I’ve used two patches here and cut them up and pieced them back together on the jacket.
