Personalized Kids Jacket

Being in California it rarely gets cold enough to warrant a “real” jacket. So a lightweight jean jacket serves us well through the fall and winter months. This year, in combination with trying to keep Nora from losing her jacket and the desire to spruce up her normal outwear I thought of something new. I attached fabric letters to the back of her jean jacket that spelled out her name. The outcome was perfection!

I purchased a very inexpensive jean jacket, some fabric letters and went at it! Well, truth be told, I had my trusty dry cleaners do the sewing for me. The letters say you can iron on, but that didn’t seem a sturdy enough option. I love when things turn out as cute in person as they do in my head- and this lived up to just that! I don’t know yet of this will keep this jacket from disappearing but it is such a unique, simple and cheap new addition to her daily wardrobe.

The assortment of  letters . They are so fun and colorful!
