DIY Jean Jackets

For Vera’s first birthday I wanted to make something we could match in, that could last us for more than just a one time use. A cold front had come in and I suddenly got the idea for some matching jean jackets and used my Cricut to personalize.

I ordered a jean jacket for Vera from Old Navy since theirs tend to be a softer, more comfortable material. Her same one is sold out but I included a link for a similar jean jacket. My jacket was an old jean jacket I had on hand, but any jacket will work as long as the back area is plain for ironing on.

I ordered a couple of strawberry and sunflower iron on patches off amazon to fit her theme linked here and here (or any patch of your choice).

I also purchased some Siser HTV Vinyl in white (I find this one the easiest to weed) and used my Cricut to create the names on Cricut design space.

I inserted the paper stuck on the Cricut mat with the shiny side down and set the setting to printable vinyl for cutting. I let the machine do it’s thing and proceeded to weed the extra material. I took the clear piece (only the names should’ve been left after you took out the extra material) and I used my t-shirt press to iron it on to the back. It was that easy.

But in case you are DIY impaired and are looking for an even easier option, I found these cute Gap Mickey an Minnie jean jackets last year (that are still in stock) that I personalized as a gift for my godson for his Disney birthday trip. It was as easy as purchasing the jacket and ordering these iron on letters and this large varsity number for his age. Check out how cute it came out below!

Let me know if you make any of these!
