Hi Craftsters!! I really need your help! My daughter (11) has been wanting a camouflage jacket ever since I found one for her brother and put some homemade Star Wars patches on. I'm so happy to say that I finally found one for her at Savers!! Yahooo ... happy dance!!
The one I found must have been meant for a female because it has a simple contraption (lack of a better word) to emphasize a waist. When I compared this to some other jackets, it didn't have it in the back. So now I am doublely happy because it looks more feminine.
So now, I want to do something more to it to kind of make it prettier. I've looked all over craftster, did web searches galore and even look at some store sites (hot topic, Macy's, etc.). But no luck.
If I can't come up with any ideas, I am just going to make some patches (Naruto insignia) for her to put on her sleeves. Speaking of which ...
I just thought I would share with you how to make some easy homemade patches. First, you go to Walmart and in the sewing section, they have these rounded off rectangle patches with the iron-on backing meant probably for patching up knee areas in pants and stuff. Well, grab that, it cost just a buck. Follow a tutorial for stencils and freezer paper. Iron your freezer paper stencil on patch, paint, cut out patch and iron on to jacket.
I was able to save $20 by making my own patches for my sons jacket. We found two cool Star Wars patches on the website but it cost way too much money. So I right clicked the image, save it and printed it on the freezer paper and made our own.
If I knew how, I would post a picture of his patches.
Anyways, thanks for reading and I hope you have an idea to share!
