Sprucing Up A Jean Jacket

So, for the longest time ever, I’ve wanted a jean jacket. Well, I got one over the summer…

Then, I came home one day and my dog had chewed the button off the bottom in the back.

Argh!!

What can I do?! Add some fabric, and make it cute. Even though I wanted a plain jean jacket, I still made this one look adorable!

The perpetrator:

 

The before and after picture:

 

I started by cutting off the flaps and the other button, so the fabric could lay flat. Next, I cut my fabric. It was kind of on the thin side, so I doubled it over to make it thicker. I sewed it, forming a tube, and then folded the sides in(don’t need to sew this yet, because you sew it down in a little bit).

 

Then, right side down, I pinned the strip down right above the bottom band. I stopped before getting to the button, because there was no way to get the button through without making a big hole.

 

I sewed it as close as I could to the edge. Once it’s sewn, pull the fabric down to cover up the seam.

 

Next, I wrapped it around to the other side, and found that it didn’t go to the other sides edge, so what I did was, using Heat N Bond, I ironed it down. What I originally wanted to do, was sew through both the layers, but this is fine, it will definitely hold.

Here it is on!

**Have a project you made using one of my tutorials? Show it off! I, along with all my followers, would love to see it! 🙂 I’ve started a new page on my blog called “Your Pictures!”, located right next to the “About This Blog!” link at the top of my blog.

Until tomorrow!
