DIY military jacket

i thrifted this jacket and fell in love with it.. but after visiting the army store in the city, i decided that it was just a bit too plain. so i added some vintage patches and made it a military jacket, literally.

its a super easy DIY- honestly, you're supposed to sew on these patches (obviously) but i wanted to wear this tonight, and i had like 10 minutes to do it, so i just decided to hot glue them. i might sew them just to reinforce later. get creative, and send me pics with your results if you try it out

p.s. just made these cookies and edited the recipe a bit ( add another tablespoon of lemon zest and i switched the fruits to dried apricots and dried cranberries and used 1 cup each. i also added an extra 1/2 cup of walnuts) - DELICIOUSS!




get the recipe here!
enjoyyyyy!
