Jacket Customization

I’ve been off in another corner of the universe for a long while working on my music with my boyfriend, a blend of folk, rock, pop, and psychedelic flavors.  The current artistic project of mine is jacket customization with patches.  I bought these two big patches at a killer fabric store in the Mission in SF, which had discounts on materials.  I got the dry cleaning lady up the street to sew on the snake and roses patch, as she had to open up the inner lining of the leather jacket.  I was able to sew the tiger patch on the denim jacket, seeming as there was no lining to open up.  Floral designs are in for spring.  I was inspired by the Guns N’ Roses theme with the snake and roses patch (Slash’s snakepit), which turns the faux leather jacket into a true one of a kind rock n’ roll piece, including the pink Playboy bunny patch sewed on the arm of the jacket by the same woman.  The tiger patch on the denim jacket is a tribute to my Chinese zodiac sign.  I’m an 86′ baby all the way.  Experimentation with patches on articles of clothing or accessories is a fun undertaking.  It all harkens back to when I used to sew band patches onto my bags and clothes in high school.  More posts coming soon!
