Jeans and Tee's DIY
While I was on va-ca I purchased a cute white tee with a patch on the bottom. The problem was, the patch was too thick for the tee fabric, and buckled. So I cut it off for future use on something else, and fringed & knotted the bottom of the tee.
The jeans are my favorite jeans ever, and so I just keep patching them. Voila, knee patches upon knee patches. I thought the peace sign was a nice addition, and could find no other suitable place for the Sublime patch other than the *ss.
I love my denim jacket. It's french. It has been going through a transformation over the years, with one beloved patch after another, and some artwork. The beautiful hand beaded bit was given to me by one of the designers years ago, along with a bag full of others. It was stuff they weren't going to use in their haute couture line. Then there's my tribute to John Lennon, the white letters spell LOVE. The red moose is for my connection to my parents, who were members of the moose lodge. Actually, I always thought moose were pretty cool. I loved the one that would wander through town on Northern Exposure. Then of course, there's the Dead bear, the ska patch, and the kiss me patch. I'd say this jacket is just about complete.
JD, I'm sorry I didn't get those pics of my favorite flea market up for you today, it's raining. Maybe next week.
Have a nice day every body! xo d
