STEP 5 At this stage, you have the basic Bomber design down. Now it’s your choice if you want to carry on and decorate your Bomber or leave it the way it is.

STEP 6 Decorate as you please. You can use all kinds of cute shit – rhinestones, ribbon, patches, badges to name a few. I chose to do a bit of dainty embroidery on mine, so I drew my designs on with chalk first, then went ahead and began embroidering away.

So simple right? Make one for yourself, your sister, your brother; your Grandma would probably love one too.
