Growing up I was always softer than the other boys — swishier, quieter, more expressive — and I was warned that this was not the way boys behave. “Boys don’t draw, and boys don’t sew. Boys don’t care about handwriting or flowers.” It took some time, but eventually I made a life out of all the things “boys don’t” do.
So in between projects, I’ve been hand sewing a couple sequins here and there to make my own sissy punk jacket. Because boys like me don’t care anymore.
The patch measures 13.75"x11." Individually sewn black and silver sequins on black canvas, sewn to a Forever 21 pink faux leather jacket. It took about 115 hours.
