Hey guys, need your help.
I'm trying to spice up an old leather jacket that is just too large. I've read up on trying to shrink it but so far have had very little success.
Soaked it in hot water for about 30min, then tossed into a very very light tumble dry for about 10min, then laid out to dry...no dice.
Any ideas on what else I could do? I don't mind if it gets banged up a bit as well.
Long term is to get an artist friend of mine to paint a WW2/RRL themed image on the back once it fits reasonably well.
Yep, pretty heavy and lined. Will have to give this another shot. Should I be afraid of the dryer or does it not really matter at this point?
Might just end up doing this. Jacket was a present so I'm kinda obligated to at least try to make it work.
