DIY: Denim Fringe Jacket

DIY Fringe Jacket


  • Denim Jacket 
  • 2 yards of fringe (length of your choice) 
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Straight pins
  • Sewing machine
  • Heavy Thread (Denim, Upholstery, of Coats fabric) 
  • Seem ripper
  • E6000 glue
  • Fabric trim (optional) 
  • Assortment of iron-on/sew on patches (optional) 


  1. Take your denim jacket and measure the length of your arm sleeve.
  2. Using your seem ripper, remove the seem from the arm sleeve.
  3. Cut the fringe to the estimated length of your arm sleeve and attach it to the open seem line using your straight pins. 
  4. Using your sewing machine/ needle and thread or glue, attach fringe to the arm sleeve. 
  5. Once fringe has been attached to the sleeve, next close your arm sleeve by sewing it or gluing it back together. (Remember not to close the arm all the way to the end of the cuff, as you need space for your arm to get through the jacket) 
  6. Repeat steps 2-6 for the second arm sleeve 
  7. Place jacket with front facing down and measure the back seem of your jacket using your measuring tape. 
  8. Use the same seem ripper to  completely remove the back seem where you will be attaching your fringe.
  9. Cut fringe to desired length and attach it to your jacket using needle/ thread or glue. 
  10. Re-attach your back seem of the jacket together using needle/ thread or glue. 
  11. Using your measuring tape, measure the length of back of jacket from one sleeve to the other following the seem lines. 
  12. Cut trim to the desired length and attach it to the back of your jacket seem lines using glue. 
  13. Apply remainder of patches to the back of the jacket using same glue. 
  14. Apply glue to dry for at least 24 hours.
  15. Once glue has dried, turn jacket onto its back and attach any patches your desire to the front of the jacket.
  16. Decorate the remainder of your jacket as you want. (I painted sleeves and attached more patches) 
  17. Allow everything to dry for another 24 hours. 
  18. You now have a fabulous personalized denim jacket to wear whenever you want
