Word balloon tote bag made by HeroFashions
Comic book fashion looks great on the right person, and cool for kids. I have started to make Christmas presents this year out of things I find in op shops, and had an idea to customise a denim jacket for my friends six year old boy.
This jacket I purchased from eBay, which arrived in excellent condition, it hardly looks worn at all (phew, you never know when you buy second hand clothes online!). I didn't expect to find any comic book fabric second hand, but what I did find, is this comic t-shirt originally from Movieworld on the Gold Coast, for $4 in Salvos Mordialloc - perfect!
I cut up the t-shirt, used some green bias strip from my sewing kit as a border to the comic book image, and stitched all of it onto the back of the jacket.
I only had yellow, green and turquoise blue bias strips, and thought green matched best, what do you think readers? Is the green border too much?
If you were a six year old boy, would you think this is cool?! I'm hoping the answer is yes...
