DIY jean jacket makeover

Cut out your flowers 

Take your crystal flowers and place them all around your jacket, finding the best placement for them. Once that’s done, trace around the flowers so that the placement is marked. Cut out the tracing and begin to fray the edges (using your tracing wheel).

Attach the flower 

Place the flower on the spare piece of denim and cut out a circle that is about one centimeter larger than the flower. Next, take that circle of denim and slip it inside the jacket, underneath the frayed circle and pin it in place. Place the flower on top of the patch and hand stitch the crystal flower into place. Repeat this process with all the remaining flowers on the jacket.

Fray the fabric 

Place a book or piece of cardboard in the jacket and cut lines between the flowers. Then, using your tracing wheel, fray the fabric of these cut lines.
