Patching DIY




For the patches: I firstly organized where I wanted to place them and prepped my iron by placing it on the cotton mode. Then, I went ahead and covered the patch I was going to iron on with a small cotton towel. Once the towel was placed above the patch I ironed it (in circular motions for 30 seconds) TIP:Be very careful with the heat of the iron.

Let it cool: After I finished iroing on the patches I went ahead and turned my jacket inside out. To secure the patches I also ironed through the inside of the jacket. Once finished, it's best to leave your piece hanging over night in room temperature for the best results of cooling.


I used fabric adhesive to glue on the pins that I purchased that weren't patches....Such as the cherries above and the bedazzled hashtag seen below.

TGIF! So happy it's finally the end of the week and we have a long weekend to look forward to. Today's post is a little different, but fun! I'm really starting to get into DIY projects, and what a better project to do than patching and share it with you all?!

The latest craze is patched EVERYTHING. From jeans, to jackets, to tops....Stores like Zara and Forever 21 have pieces similar to the one I created above (but of course I had to personalize mine with patches that best described me). These materials and products are really accessible to find and best part, this whole DIY project was under $75! So get your girl friends together, some jeans jackets, patches, and enjoy this fun summer DIY project! (PSA: A little wine wouldn't hurt either)

Until next post,
