Today, I prepared for you a very simple fashion DIY: the idea is to customize your army jacket with embroidered patches.
You couldn’t miss it: this year, smileys (for the
oldest more mature) or rather emojis, for the youngest: after having conquered our smartphones, invade our dressings! For this DIY, you can choose the type of patch you like: army like or really fun!
DIY army jacket customization: material
First thing: you need a military jacket (it also works with a sweat-shirt, t-shirt, etc…)! I bought mine about 13 years ago: it’s almost vintage!

HOW to customize your military jacket:

I hope you like my DIY. Rather than a DIY I would call it a customization. Besides weather will be bad this week-end, so this might be a very good occupation between two episodes of your favorite series!!!
