Soon, I will be recieving my very own pair of Engineering coveralls:

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v26/hush_ds/coveralls.jpg">

It's customary for people to cover them with patches, but most of the ones I find are lame. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what I could do to jazz mine up? I want to stand out as a craftster/cool chick haha
thanks!

Felt Patches is a neat idea.  I got inspired from this to make some beaded appliques for a bellydance costume I'm working on (but I'm lazy and I want to use glue, so right now all it does is shed seed beads everywhere.)

Awwwe..... your link isn't working.....  Cry

 I decided to something along similar lines, but I didn't want to mess with seed beeds. So I crocheted circles and sewed on cowrie shells.

I'd use hot fix crystals.  The good ones stay on like iron through all kinds of washings.  I haven't lost any off my kids' jeans through tons of washing!

I agree with paroper, hot fix crystals hold up well in the wash!  I've gotten them in bulk from ebay and they come in a wide variety of colors. 

Have you tried looking for emboridered patches online?  You may find some more fun and original ones there.
