Boondock Saints Cross DIY Jacket
White colored pencil/chalk
1.) First, you need to measure out the cross. I used my old black pants from waitressing for my fabric (goodbye restaurant shackles) and I just made an outline in white colored pencil.
2.) To create the ring around the cross you’ll need something circular to trace. I used my case of mix tapes.
3.) Cut out your cross leaving about 1 1/2 inches of fabric around it.
4.) Cut in the edges to create slits. You’ll fold these over and tape them down later so the front of your cross doesn’t looked jaggedy and destroyed. Unless you want it to look unfinished, then skip all these hasslesome steps.
5.) Make pizza shaped holes in the inner part of the circle.
6.) Cut the three corners of the pizza slices in so you can fold them.
7-8.) For this step I used crappy hemming tape from Wal-Mart or whatever. You could use hot glue, or super glue, or pins, or really anything that will fold the edges down where you want them until you sew the cross onto the jacket. Hell, you could even just iron the edges down.
9.)The back of your cross should look my shit now.
10.) Flip that bitch over and using your safety pins, lay it out where you want it to go.
11.) Spending for fucking ever hand-sewing the cross on. Or, if you’re not a broke, sewing machine-less motherfucker like me you could probably have this done in 5-10 minutes and have it look much better.
12.) Say your prayers and kill some crack pipin’, ass wipin’ motherless lowlifes.
