I know Summer is upon us, but I like for the kids to have a light jacket for when we go to the movies or other indoor chilly places, and if you know me you know a plain one will never do.

I wanted it blotchy and not too “perfect” and this technique definitely produces those results!

First, follow this tutorial on bleaching your jacket.  Then:

Pro Tip:  Only dye in a stainless steel sink (like a kitchen sink) NOT porcelain, it will stain.  If you don’t have a stainless steel sink you can use a rubbermaid tub.
 
Pro Tip:  Don’t wash with anything that you don’t want to turn pink!

I also made a heart with studs on the back, because ya know, I can’t leave well enough alone.  Good thing she loves it 🙂
