Any random piece of fabric

Everything is from eBay and super cheap! Even more, some of these patches have significance to my life, check out my YouTube video to learn which ones!
◊ Disclaimer: Items may take a while (up to a month) to arrive from China!
◊ Tip: When choosing patches, I mostly matched the colors of the patch to the colors of the purse. However, it’s still fun to add pops of color like the red in my Betty Boop patch!

Patches are popular this season, especially on bomber jackets and shorts! This DIY is so simple; it probably doesn’t need explanation! I’ve seen purses with patches, but the purse itself was always plain or denim. I wanted a funkier print, this tribal purse was perfect for the job! Feel free to re-vamp an old purse!
Step One: Get your hands on some patches. Arrange your patches in a design.
◊ Tip: Take a picture of your design for reference! Or take pics of multiple designs and pick your favorite one!
Step Two: Find fabric in your room – a scarf, t-shirt, cloth, anything. This fabric will be used as a barrier between your patch and your iron. You don’t want heat from the iron to ruin the patch.
◊ Tip: Light cloth is preferred. Fabric that is too thick will block too much of the iron’s heat.
Step Three: Place your fabric on top of the patches & iron the patch on to your purse or whatever clothing item you’d like!
And you’re done! You can stop here if you’d like! I just added a brooch for a nice little touch.
BONUS: The brooch is pinned onto the purse, so I can remove it whenever I want! If you’d like added security, use a hot glue gun, jewelry glue, or fabric glue to secure the brooch.
This purse is only the first of more DIY purses and many more DIY projects! Subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay tuned!
