1  Altered denim jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by purplexime on: December 09, 2016 11:45:29 AM
Hi all!
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.

Her is a photo of the cute envelope.


And look at the contents !!  I love them all!!


A hand painted ribbon, a cute paper banner, a nice posted notes with a cute butterfly.  I am so surprise to see how she used puzzle pieces.  They are adorable.  And my favorite are the awesome butterflies. How did you do them dftba?  Do you have tutorial?  I love them!!

I feel so lucky to be the first person that has received the patches.  I love what my partner vkvhawk created for me.  Thank you so much.  Her work and details are lovely.  She sent them in a cute envelope too!!

My patches are ready to be mailed.  I felt that a plain envelope was too boring so I decided to get creative and used some paint to add a personal touch.  Going to the post office later!!

Lovely. I'm new to Zentangle and just finished my first tile. Great work. Looks like you spent lots of time on these. Is there any book you would recommend and your favorite supplies for beginners like me?  Thank you for sharing !!  
This is my work your thoughts and opinion would be great
