Patched up denim jacket

My latest project involved a thrifted denim jacket (originally from H&M) and some cute food patches I bought off of Aliexpress.

I pinned my patches on to find the best pattern, and then unpinned and glued them on one by one.

Afterwards I decided that glue wasn’t enough, so I also sewed them on. I didn’t sew all the way around each patch as that would take ages – depending on the shape of the patch I just sewed in three or four corners to make it sit.

I’m super happy with the result as it was something that I had wanted to do for quite some time now! You can buy the same patches here.

Growing tomato plants (amongst other things…)

I present to you… my latest hobby!

I have never grown anything from scratch (or, seeds) before, so I have literally called my mom asking her about every single step. Turns out it wasn’t that hard, though. Plus, google is your friend – I’m convinced there isn’t anything you can’t google the answer to.

If I could turn back time a month I would have made sure to remember to name what kind of plant was in each pot. Rookie mistake, I guess. Most of them are tomato plants anyway.

Just look at this beauty!

We’ll just have to see how these turn out, but I would definitely do this again. It’s so much fun watching them grow from day to day!

Kate Moss and I

I spent the afternoon drawing things to decorate our rather dull walls with. I had an idea in my head that I wanted to draw celebrities in different styles, but ended up just drawing Kate Moss and Kanye West.

My boyfriend asked me who “that girl” was, so I guess I must have failed, but I still quite like how it turned out (and to be honest – I don’t think he knew who she was even when I explained).

I should probably clarify that I am not an artist nor Kate Moss’ biggest fan, but girl has a nice face.
