I had a boring and plain denim jacket that I altered with some embroidery floss. For the pockets and sleeve accents I used pieces of a discarded fabric that my artist friend used on the floor when painting, so it has random acrylic paint all over.
For the back I used a patch from the "Slow Cloth/Boro embroidery patches" swap. It is a lovely work done by vkwhawk.
I really like the results. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
