DIY: Customized Jean Jacket

Now that school is fast approaching, back to school wardrobe shopping is on every girl’s back to school prep list. With the fall season right around the corner, what’s better than adding a customized jean jacket to your collection?

I bought my jean jacket at Patch (a vintage store in downtown Victoria) and started drawing on it with a sharpie and adding meaningful quotes to it.

Drawing on fabric with a permanent marker may sound tough, not being able to mess up with holding a permanent marker in your hand; but have no fear – it’s a lot easier than it seems.

My customized jean jacket: an underwater theme

This DIY is something I picked up from my buddy Justin – an amazing artist! He started doodling on his jean jacket with amazing free hand drawings. I was so impressed and it looked so fun, I had to try it myself!

My faith has always been my rock throughout my live, and I wanted a daily reminder that even when things seem impossible, there is always a way through with God. That is why I decided putting one of my favourite bible quotes on the back of my jean jacket.

This DIY is actually very therapeutic for releasing stress, which is why I started doing this during midterm season in University. I started with just two jellyfish drawings on my back, and slowly started adding to it whenever I was feeling overwhelmed, or whenever I had some downtime (although you never really have downtime in university, you have to make time).

Would highly recommend trying this out! you could even do it with a friend and match! lemme know what ya think!
