DIY Denim with Factorie

15 August 2016

I've always been a big fan of denim jackets with patches, I've just never made the leap to actually making my own. Factorie gave me a push in the right direction by supplying me with some denim of my choosing and way more patches than I could possibly ever need, to see what I could come up with! 

It was hella fun and super easy. Plus now I'm definitely on board with buying my own patches in the future and pimpin' out my jeans and denim shorts. 

I sat down and positioned those patches all over the jacket in every single combination. Which patches did I like the most? What did I want front and centered? How did I want to back of the jacket to look? 

After arranging and rearranging I took some quick iphone snaps for memory, and then set about on the application process. 

To stick on your patches, places them onto a spot where you would like them. Lay a damp cloth over the top and with an iron (set to cotton heat level) iron over the patches for 20-30 seconds. I must admit I was stingy on the ironing at first, but I went back and actually held it there for the allotted time and they actually stuck! 

Then flip your denim inside out and iron the patches through the back of the denim for another 20-30 seconds. You really want to warm that adhesive up so the patches well and truly stick. 

Factorie was also rad enough to send me shopping for a matching outfit to go with my now pimped out denim jacket. I grabbed an outfit and accessories to match.

I grabbed the Fringe Sling Bag and my favourite pack of Plush stickers which made this bag super cute. My kitten sure did like to play with those tassels too. 

"Nope" Design originally from These are Things
Theses "Splendour Sunnies" were such a bargain and they are super cute. I also had to make sure my favourite patches were front and center.

Have a great week!
