I have this really boring crappy demin jacket that I wanna make awesome. I'm gonna put patches and pins on it, possibly studs, and I really wanna make the lapels and collar leopard, because I'm obsessed with leopard print. how do you do it? do you just put the jacket on the fabric, draw the shape onto it, and start sewing it on? also will this be insanely difficult/time consuming, since I don't have a sewing machine.

We did something similar for some costumes last year.  You want to cut a shape to match the collar/lapel that is at least 1/2-inch larger than the original.  That will give you something to fold under so that you don't have a raw edge all around.  Then you can just whip-stitch it down to the original.  If you are wanting to make it fairly permanent, you might try fusing the new material onto the original with fusible web. (I would still sew the edges down.)

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!
