Hi, I just found this torn up pair of jeans in my garage and noticed something about them. All over are markings from sharpies like little "I rock" doodled hearts and stuff like that. I noticed on it, it didn't just say I rock it said Ashley rocks (the girl who owned the jeans) and she past away about two years back and didn't have anything to remember her by. Until now, Ive seen all these jackets that are made out of jeans and such and thats what I want to to. I have several other jeans willing to be sacrificed towards the project and was thinking all her "doodles" would be collaged in the back and some on the side. If any of you have anything that can help me create this jacket I would greatly appreciate it. I don't really know where to start and have never made a jacket before so all the tips would help me greatly. I am extremely determined and will be checking back every chance I get.

Thanks for reading and help in advance.

I once saw a diy pattern that involved using the jeans upside down. Cutting them off at the crotch. Opening the zipper up. and then somehow using the legs as sleeves. Using other fabric/sacrified jeans to make the other parts.Don't give up hope. I will look through my stuff and see if I can find it.

I actually found the instructions for the jacket and a vest which is easier. Are you interested?
