It’s easy to feel like you’re a custom jacket person if you wear one every day. But what if you want to stand out from the crowd? What if you want something that no one else has, that only people who know how to sew can make? I’m here to teach you how to make your very own custom jackets, so let’s get started!
A jeans jacket with the name of your favorite band added to the back
- You can print on anything, so if you want to make your own custom jean jacket, it’s pretty easy.
- To start with, you need a heat press. This is used to apply the design that has been printed onto transfer paper (more on this later). The temperature of the press will heat up the transfer paper and cause it to melt onto your fabric.
- If you don’t have access to a heat press, then you could use an iron instead (we recommend using one in conjunction with some spray starch). We’ve found that ironing works well when printing onto cotton or cotton blends but not as good on polyester or other synthetic fabrics. If this is how you’re going about making your own custom jacket printing Singapore then we would recommend cutting out stencils of whatever design/logo etc.,
you want applied and then trace these stencils onto each piece of fabric separately before applying them with your iron! This way there will be no pesky fraying around any edges like can happen when using an iron alone because of heat build-up.
A leather jacket with the AFI logo in white on red
If you’re a fan of the band AFI, then this is a great idea. The logo is simple, with just two letters and an arrow pointing up. It’s easy to draw on your jacket in white or black marker. You can also buy patches from any fabric store if you want to sew it on instead.
If you don’t know what AFI is or are not into that type of music at all, then this tutorial won’t be helpful for you! But maybe it will inspire some ideas for jackets with other logos from other bands or even things like superheroes and cartoons?
We hope you’ve found some inspiration from these jackets and are ready to make your own! There are so many possibilities with custom jackets, from adding patches or decals, to sewing on buttons or pins. You can even buy a plain jacket and use fabric paint pens to customize it yourself. Whatever method you choose, just remember that it takes time and patience—and maybe a few mistakes along the way (don’t worry about those!). The important thing is having fun while creating something unique for yourself.
