Your unbranded jacket is now ready to show off your style, or, um, your child's style.
I'm not a fan of overtly branded clothing. I don't want to be a billboard for corporate advertising, and I don't want my son to be either. When I was given a few toddler clothes a few months ago, one of the items was a jacket in a pretty two-tone blue color. It was a nice jacket, but it had a large appliqued logo on the front. I kept the jacket with the intention of removing the design and putting on one of my choosing. Now, with my sewing stuff in disarray from the move, this simple project rose to the top of the queue. Here's a quick tutorial so you can join my unbranding revolution.
How to Unbrand a Knit Appliqued Jacket
- Seam ripper
- Fabric scrap (knit or woven)
- Fusible web
- Embroidery floss or thread
Measure the area you want to cover. Since the puncture marks from the original design will still be visible, try to make your new design at least as big to cover up as many of the marks as possible.
