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.

It looks great and I love that you used your boro/slow stitch swap patch for it. That's really terrific to see one of those in action. Wearable art, amazing!
