Yall know I love me a DIY and between Facebook and Pinterest I get all kinds of ideas. I’m the girl that is out and about and will see something and quickly say “Oh I can make that”. So here is me “making it”. I used this tutorial HERE from Mimi G Style, it was super easy to do. I’m not big on measuring, and I don’t own the tools she had so I kind of eye ball things and go from there. My tools aren’t typical but they get the job done.
Easy Denim Stud Jacket
My unconventional tool (CD) made a good arch. If you have a ruler great, if not find a circular object in your home that you can use as a substitute.
Putting the studs on the patches were a bit painful. I probably should have used something other than my fingernails to close the prongs on the back of the stud. I did draw blood a time or two so do better than I did. My patches are all complete, not perfect but good enough for my first time.
Then I placed them in position and secured them with a stick pins. I suggest trying it on to see exactly where they hit on your body. Make any adjustments before going to the next step.
Then I stitched them in place by hand.
I should have trimmed the one patch down (right one) a little after I put all the studs on, but that’s okay.
I can’t wait to really rock it. Update: I still love this jacket but it makes carrying my purse on my shoulder a bit complicated.
I purchased this denim jacket for my daughter. I decided to make it a little funky using some small star studs. I didn’t want it to be over kill so I put three rows on the shoulder area and a few on the pocket area. I thought it was really cute, she said it was pretty too.
