DIY Project










you'll be needing a sheet of paper, pencil, cissor, thread, needle, and a chalk.
(you can either sew it by hand or with the help of a sewing machine for a 
better outcome) 



First do the outline for the patch on a sheet of paper, then cut it out
(the paper pattern must be the exact copy of the desired patch)
My jacket already had double seams on the back, so I only had to trace them.
(if your jacket has a plane back, without seams, you have to mark the position of the patch on it)


then place the paper pattern on the back of the fabric you've chosen for the patch, take a piece of chalk and draw an outline on it. The direction line has to go with the grain of the fabric. The outline must be at least 1 cm wider on all sides, so that you can fold in the fabric when you sew it.
(here I've already folded the fabric and ironed it- this helps you see the trace you have to sew on)


next, place the patch on the jacket, matching the edges to the seams (or to the marked area) and sew the two fabrics together.
My mom's old sewing machine did the job for me :)


And there you have it!



Now your back deserves attention too



Good luck with your own DIY project!
