rancid patch

4

New diy project. Having trouble deciding what to do with it though. It took some experimenting with different dyes to get the vest to these colors (it started out as a bright red), but I love how it turned out and I kinda don’t want to cover it all up in patches and stuff because I like it clean so that the colors show. But I also don’t want it to be too clean. And I’m not sure what I feel about the back… Fuck, I’m not sure how I feel about anything. Except the colors.

so here they are!

denim jacket: Kenneth’s “replacement”. took a lot of stuff from the old one, like for example the backpatch (the text is swedish and means “Nothing’s waiting for us, so what are you waiting for?”)
I’ve recently taken some stuff off of it, so thats why it’s so empty in some places. still trying to figure out what to fill in the blank spaces with..
I think 14 or so of the patches were bought at rebellion last year, or were “recycled” from old clothes. everything else is DIY.

fake leather jacket: done some slight changes but all in all it looks the same. everything is DIY.

fake leather vest: everything is DIY except for the rancid patch, biohazard patch and the swedish police’s do not cross-tape thingy.
(‘korv’ is, for those of you who hasnt picked it up off of my blog yet, the swedish word for sausage, and it’s also my favourite word and my nickname)

As promised a video about how i make patches.

Very sorry for my bare tired face.

Also forgot to mention that you can trace pictures off of your computer screen onto the acetate if you don’t want to draw it free hand.

Hope you find this helpful :) 

So after a long long time, a ton of notes, and a lot of failures, I finally figured out a way to make these! I don’t figure a lot of people will actually want to buy them, but if you want to purchase one, I’ll be more than happy to sell one to you for about 5ish bucks + shipping. They’re about 9.5" on each side so they’re pretty good for back patches. SO! If you want one, send me an ask and we can figure out how to get one to you! Also if you want a shirt with this on it, I can do that, but it’ll cost a bit more than five bucks. But the option is there if you want it!

My patchy pants, I don’t want to take pictures of the others (I’m tired and they’re not as gr8 anyway).
Three years of mucking around in these; oh, young love!
