DIY: Literary Vest

Since my DIY abilities are very limited, I try to keep it simple. I while ago, I got a vest from Khol's and decided to spiff it up. Originally it was a vibrant blue, but I wasn't very fond of that so I dyed it. I used Rit's Wine dye and it turned a beautiful deep purple colour. Then, I took some white and black cloth and some craft paint and painted quotes on the material. Stuck them on with some safety clips and, voila! Instant quote patches!

quote from Robert Frost
H.P. Lovecraft
Poe again
E.L. Doctorow
Emily Dickinson
Shakespeare again
Silvia Plath
J.R.R. Tolkien
I also did this with a jean jacket I had, but instead of quotes, I made patches of some of my favourite bands. I'll post those pictures later.
