« on: May 15, 2013 04:04:03 PM »

Sometime last year I found a tweed jacket in a charity shop and decided to customise it. I added studs and used spray paint and heat press vinyl to create a big back piece design. My friends absolutely loved it and said I should make more, so in my spare time I did. I picked up a few jackets when I visited charity shops and markets and made a few designs.

I decided to give them the brand name "Green Devil" as upcycling and customising things to keep them from landfill has always been a passion of mine. I am a Green Devil!

 I'm so happy that people like my designs.

I'd love to hear what you guys think.

These are great! Your first one is my favourite. I can totally see these selling well in the right market. I'm surprised to hear they went well at craft shows - they're usually too conservative for this sort of thing!

These are awesome! I especially love the Alice in Wonderland themed one. Just needs the Mad Hatter's Top Hat Cheesy

Nice up-cycling. I love the graphics over the plain/subdued prints, and the fact that it's such attitude/creativity applied to what would otherwise be ordinary business wear (for mainstream society).

Thanks graverobbergirl.

Yeah, I see so many work jackets that all look the same I wanted to liberate them and give them some personality!

I LOVE the details on all of them. Especially the studs on your first jacket and the patterns on the Seven deadly sins and Alice in Wonderland jacket.
I totally can see myself (and a lot more others) buying your clothes from your own brand store Cheesy So I really hope you make more of your wonderful jacket designs
