I was putting away keepsakes for the kids this week, and I came across the “Big Sis” denim jacket I made for my daughter. (You can see it in the post from when we were taking pictures to announce that we were expecting our baby boy here!) I had looked all over for what I wanted but couldn’t find it anywhere. So I did what I normally do… I decided to try to make it myself. Sometimes this goes really well and other times… well, not so well.
I LOVE how it came out. And now she has the cutest keepsake jacket in her stuff. Someday when she’s older I hope she’s excited about it!
What you need to make your own custom jacket
To make the jacket I used a denim jacket she already had and added large-size applique letters. We knew it was a boy, so I used blue letters with a white outline. But there are some really cute options you can find online to give you a more colorful look if you want that, or just plain white!
Just looking back at these pictures makes me realize how fast time goes. Those boots were probably 3-4 shoe sizes ago, and that little gold and white striped dress was one of her favorites. I let her keep wearing it until it wouldn’t button anymore in the back. I just can’t handle how fast the time is going!
What’s the best DIY you’ve made? I’d count this BIG SIS jacket among my favorites that I’ve done!
