Patch it up: DIY bomber

Patch it up: DIY bomber

I’m a big fan of the patches trend and already wrote about wanting to do a DIY with patches a while back. At first I wanted to do a denim DIY, but then I saw this Zara bomber popping up. I have to admit that Zara is so good recently! I already own one of their patch jeans and really loved the idea of this jacket as well. But as with a lot of Zara items everyone and their mum owns this bomber. So I ordered a bunch of patches on Ebay for my own little project.

If you are going to do this yourself, be aware that a lot of Ebay sellers don’t ship that fast. This means it might take a while before you get your jacket done! Mine mostly came about 2 weeks after ordering. So I took my iron and my ironing board out on a rainy Sunday afternoon and went patch crazy! Some of the patches needed stitching instead of ironing, but that’s actually a good thing. Some of the iron on patches already fell off, so it might not be a bad idea to stitch all of them on in the end. I absolutely love how the jacket turned out, although it’s still work in progress. I might have to add a couple of patches & pins to the mix! 

This look can be seen on TV tonight: Net 5, Elke dag een look, 17:45, 21:15, 00:00 en 01:00. Let me know if you’ve watched it!
