I finished this piece last night and it turned out amazing. I scored this 100% leather jacket at Value Village for $3.50 on a 50% off day! When I tried it on, it fit like a dream and there was something about it that told me I needed to keep this one.
I appliqued a Halloween felt plate charger to the back of it and it was done. Nothing else needed on this one. Of course, the raven is what attracted me to the decor piece and with the contrast of the whie jacket, it really makes a statement. Sewing on the applique was tricky but, with a little patience, some well placed pins and a leather needle in my machine, it came together.
I never make anything for myself to wear anymore because I am so concentrated on pieces for my shows and clients. It was a nice break to take time and create something that was just for me. Now, back to work!
