Patching My Old Jean Jacket

Who doesn’t LOVE a jean jacket for fall??? I have quite a few of them, including a dark, jean Levis that I’ve had probably since high school. I don’t find myself ever really wearing this one, so I decided to spruce it up and give it new life with some patches!

I found these SUPER fun angel wing patches on Littlebraid’s Etsy page a while ago, along with a few other fun patches!

This is a really easy way to spruce up any denim. These patches are iron on, so all you need is a flat surface (I used the living room floor), an iron and a damp towel or washcloth to act as a heat barrier.

From there you just place the washcloth over the patch and apply the heat. The wings took more time under the iron because there was lots to glue down, and you want to make sure you get the edges really secured.

The entire jacket, front and back, took me about 30 minutes to finish. Pack your patience because some of the patches are thicker, and seem to need more heat to stick. That just means more time for wine šŸ˜‰ Just monitor the iron presses to make sure you aren’t burning, or letting the patches get too hot! I also ironed from the inside of the jacket to make sure the wings were really secure.

The finished product was well worth the arm workout of ironing on repeat! I am OBSESSED.

Happy patching!
