DIY with Patches

DIY stands for Do-It-Yourself. It is a very convenient and fun method as an alternative way to get something we want. Some stores just don’t sell the item we are seeking and the very few stores that carry them sell them for prices that are out of our league. As a fix, we can DIY these masterpieces. The biggest trend of this year is probably patches. Patches look like beautiful embroidery that was hand-stitched for countless hours. On websites like e-Bay or Amazon, patches are sold as wholesale, meaning bulks are sold for a couple bucks. With all these patches, the options are limitless when it comes to DIY products.

Here are some easy(er) patch DIY ideas. Buy a bulk and share the fun & style with your friends!

Bomber Jacket: Bomber jackets are the bomb item during winter, fall spring, and even in summer for some places. To spice up any bomber jacket you own, simply attach some patches. A clear theme can be incorporated like military, navy, or trendy vibe. Many contemporary patches can be ironed on easily but if you want to really secure them on, sew them on.
