Erasmus-diary in retrospect, month no. 1 πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

I had so much fun making my ESC-diaries in retrospect about my volunteering experience in Austria, that I thought it would be cool to take a trip down memory lane and do the same for my Erasmus exchange semester in Sheffield, UK.

24.   Make iron on patches
Let’s start with a very cool one: I made an iron on patch! Kind of at least, because I glued it on the jean jacket with fabric glue, but it does look like an iron on patch. My first try at embroidery, making a little Lumpur for my jacket.
