MY DIY | Patchwork Denim
We have officially entered Fall weather, so I have been bundling up everyday with this ginormous plaid blanket scarf. I think I love it more then any scarf I’ve ever owned! To balance out the oversized colorful piece, the rest of my outfit is mostly black and white, including my new DIY patchwork denim jeans. As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted a no-sew way to create the patchwork look. After cutting squares out of the denim and distressing, I used fabric glue to attach the plaid and leather patches to the inside. I love the mix of textures using just black and white, giving my jeans a cool look with out being an overwhelming look. Steps and supplies after the break…
