    I love it when your hair is down. It’s so pretty! The patches are cool but my little boys won’t have flowers. I need some patches that look like scabs or something. :) haha. I don’t understand boys. Do you have any of those? But then, my boys don’t wear blazers either. heehee. Have a good day!

    Where were these when I was growing up? My mom would patch my jeans with those awful/awkward/stiff square ones from the fabric store.

    The original jacket’s not a patch on the refashion!

    January 18, 2013 at 5:39 pm (3 years ago)

    These are so awesome! Seriously, I’ve always thought the patch thing was cute, but I’d never considered finding shops that sell them!

    As for the email address thing, can’t we give that to you post-drawing? Something about putting my personal email address in the comments section of a blog where everything is public makes me a lil’ uncomfortable.

    January 18, 2013 at 5:49 pm (3 years ago)

    Omg, these are so cool and just what I need to patch the rather noticeable tear in the butt of my FAVORITE jeans…. I’ve been a sad panda about this for a while now. Also I don’t comment often so i’ll tell you now that I LOVE your blog and all of the really neat ideas and inspiration I draw from it. :)

  29. Rachael Grange

    Last year my grandma taught me how to sew and sent me home(she lives 2.5 hours away from me) with her 50+ year-old Singer 301 sewing machine. I didn’t (and still kind of don’t) know how to read sewing patterns and since I’m a poor high school(almost college) student, fabric and notions are waaaaay to expensive for me! In hope of finding another outlet for my new passion of sewing, I got on Pintrest where I found your awesome website! You have been such a huge inspiration to me! Even though I’m really busy with school, preparing for college, band, tennis etc… I have still found time to refashion (most likely) unwanted Goodwill items! These patches were a great find and it is very generous of you to give them away! Good luck everybody!

  31. smokeartbysaraSara
    January 18, 2013 at 6:04 pm (3 years ago)

    Love ’em! Can think of several items in my closet that could use some spicing up with patches! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I’ve been enjoying your blog so much since I found it about a month ago, reading through every single post! I’m merely a dabbler at refashioning, so an easy shortcut like this, plus the fact that they’re beautiful floral vintage prints is totally awesome. I can be contacted at panwashu (at)

  45. Leighann
    January 18, 2013 at 7:14 pm (3 years ago)

    Excuse my lack of eloquence but… Er. Mah. Gerd! I love the colour of that blazer after you dyed it!! And the patches give it a little blim-blam-blow :)

    I’ve been reading your blog for months and months, trying to work up the courage to try out some refashions myself. I love thrifting (or junking, as we call it in my house :P) so watching you buy cheap treasure store finds and making beautiful things out of them is the pinnacle of awesomeness!

    Also, I posted for your draw, and my email is

    I love this idea. I have a pair of jeans that just split on both knees. They are about 9 years old and are only just worn in. A set of patches would look awesome on these babies.
    I stumbled across your blog on pinterest and have been inspired to do a few refashions myself since following you. We live right smack bang in the middle of Australia and I need to order in most of my material from the cities. But it’s certainly worth the wait and worth it to have one of a kind pieces.

    The changes are so simple but the final blazer is SO CUTE. I really love the floral skull pattern, it goes with my sensibilities. I’d steal it from you in a heartbeat but I guess I’ll settle with making my own ;-)

    January 23, 2013 at 9:09 pm (3 years ago)

    This is really cute. Hopefully, you’ll show us how you “refashioned” the blazer. It looks very fitted and stylish.

    • Sherry S
      January 24, 2013 at 12:11 am (3 years ago)

      Becky, do you mean what garment was the blazer refashioned from or how Refashionista refashioned the blazer itself? It seems Refashionista got the blazer like it was in the first picture and she explains the blazer was dyed then patches added.

      • Becky
        January 24, 2013 at 6:14 pm (3 years ago)

        Other than the dye (she has such a way with dye) and cute elbow patches, did Refashionista “tailor” the blazer for a bitter fit? She is very tiny and the first picture of the blazer looks too big for her small frame.

    January 23, 2013 at 11:54 pm (3 years ago)

    I really could do with these patches so many boring tops totally made cool. I would love to win some please! Thanks for the chance and I really like your blog!
