In my last post “What’s In the Bag” I showed you a pair of Zara Jeans that I recently bought. However I felt the rips in the thigh were a bit too rippy (have I just made that word up?) Anyway, I decided to customise them and put a dark denim patch underneath one of the gigantic rips.
I found a pair of my little boy’s old jeans and cut out a patch to size (I never knew kids grown out clothes would come in so handy, after all one persons trash is another persons treasure). I distressed the denim patch slightly using scissors and bonded the customised patch using wonder web and an iron.

I love customising clothes, I used to do a lot of it when I was younger and I really must dust off my sewing machine get back into it again. You can make some really cool and unique items. Patches are probably the simplest of ways to customise clothes, very inexpensive and on the plus side they are big this season.
