TRAVELOGUE

Some time ago I finished embroidering the aforementioned sleeve of my denim jacket.

I appreciate stitching things like this as they are steeped with personal meaning and memories, and adds a colourful touch to a second-hand jean jacket. As well, it’s a great way to find my coat in a pile of denim in a dark bar, without getting too sentimental.
