Trust me: You are going to love this customized denim jacket. Denim makes a fabulous neutral 

backdrop for almost any sort of embellishment. As a result, the possibilities are endless. Using

 embroidery, iron-on patches, and applique touches, you can make this jacket exquisitely

 tailored to you, and it will become the perfect statement piece for your wardrobe.

For this version, I settled on a motivational saying across the back shoulder, an iron-on peony 

patch, and a pretty hand-embroidered floral design added to the front. But first, here is what you 

will need.

Embroidered Words


First, I started by hand-embroidering "Get it, girl" across the back. Doing this by hand allows for 

flexibility in font choice. I wanted my version of the jacket to be fun and funky, but simple and 

pretty too. I love having the unique script instead of the typical patch letters. Certainly, there are 

a lot of available iron-on patch letters if you want to go the fast route. I chose colors that 

complimented the jacket, but also matched the applique patch.


1. Using desired font, print out saying in desired size. Cut and place on jacket.

2. Use embroidery tracing paper and a pen to transfer words to jacket. Put fabric down, then 

tracing carbon paper, then desired shape or word. Draw over shape or letters with a ballpoint pen

 to transfer design to jacket.

Iron-On Rose Patch


Next, I ironed the rose patch to the back. This was fantastically fast. So fast, in fact, that the entire

 jacket can be done in a half-hour or less if you stick to using patches. You can find lots of floral 

patches online. I liked these thistles too. Think about all the sports clubs, favorite characters, or

 symbols that you can find all over the internet. 


1. Place the patch in desired location.

2. Position cotton pressing cloth between the patch and the iron.

3. Press down on patch for 30 seconds without moving the iron. Try to cover the whole patch with

 one iron press. Otherwise, repeat until you have covered the entire patch with heat evenly. Turn 

your fabric over and repeat from the other side of the fabric.

Floral Embroidery


Finally, I added hand-embroidered flowers. This sweet little floral design with grow strong

compliments the large flower and saying in the back, but on a smaller scale. The color scheme is

 the same, but the detail of this embroidery seems like just the thing to finish off the jacket. Use it 

also on other items that need embellishing, like hand towels, aprons, totes or pillow cases. 


To embroider stems: Use two strands of DMC 25 (it comes with six strands in the floss) and stem stitch.


To embroider leaves: Embroider with two strands of DMC 25 and the lazy daisy or detached chain stitch.


To embroider buds: Use two strands of DMC 25 and the satin stitch to form the bud shape. Use 

green to wrap around the bottom of the bud with a straight stitch.


To embroider open wild rose: Embroider with two strands of DMC 25 and the satin stitch in each

 petal. For the center, use a straight stitch and french knots.


To embroider long stem roses: Use the full 6 strands of DMC 25, and make overlapping straight

 stitches in a circle shape.

Try each of these techniques, or mix and match as you like. Either way, it is bound to

 become your favorite new item. Enjoy your new favorite jacket!
