Bee happy ...... get the tweed out

I was looking through my Country Living magazine and came across this upcycled tweed jacket.
I love all of the little extra details on here so thought I would change a jacket of my own.

This grey tweed jacket is from Matalan and thought it would be perfect to add some pretties to.

These are the colours I think I will use, Tilda ribbons and satin fabric with a Cath Kidston crown brooch and a brooch I have made. May be a little vintage lace too .....
Check back soon to see the changes.

  1. What a splendid idea! I am looking forward to the transformation. When I was a young girl, there was a girl in my class who wore a few blazers. She would embroider the arms and pockets with flowers and such, and they were transformed into delightful items.

    Enjoy a happy day, Deb, dear.

  2. I saw this in the CL magazine too, it's very Autumnal and fun. I think you will have a lovely, original jacket when you have finished and look forward to seeing how it turns out.

  3. Oooh, can't wait! This is right up my street, upcycling and re-purposing! Love it and the items/colours you have chosen!

  4. Can't wait to see what it looks like when you have finished xx


Thank you for your comments, I love to read them all!
