The Bald Man's Favorite Present

Kwik Sew 3251 Jean Jacket. I could not wait to give this to him. It took 5 full days to finish but was not hard to make. It all went together so well !!! It was just very time consuming.
I was to happy with it to wait until Christmas.

I used 2 different colors of denim... one I bleached completely out, the other I just bleached a little. I wanted it to look "rugged"! This was a very heavy 100% cotton denim! So it should last a long time!


All embroidery is from Embroidery Library online.
I embroidered a howling wolf and moon on the arm...



A cross and wolf tracks on the other arm...



A beautiful wolf silhouette on the back shoulder....



Wolf eyes over the front pocket....
and ofcourse added the initials of my "label"... which has special meaning to the Bald Man.





I mixed the jean buttons.. using gold, silver and antique brass.... AND I took my seam ripper to it
to "rag" it out a some.... more of that "rugged" look I was going for. Then washed and dried it again to get the fringes on all the rips.

He loves it... says he hates to take it off.... and tells everyone I made it for him... makes me feel
like my efforts with this are very appreciated.
And best of all... he's wearing this more than the yoda blazer! lol!!!!!

He looks super happy, that's a really cool jacket. I hadn't seen the two tone like that before, most jean jackets are a solid color so they can look a bit bland. The embroidery is awesome, those wolf eyes won me over. You're such a pro. :):):):)

Many hugs,
Lory

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
