Patches, if you haven’t already noticed, are making a comeback. I’m seeing them on jeans, jackets, etc. so I was inspired to DIY up a totally patched-out purse! This purse is from the Goodwill and the patches are all from our local Jo-Ann’s craft store. I think it looks cute with pretty much any outfit. If you have to carry a purse every day, it may as well be a fun one! Because, #WHYNOT!?

- hot glue gun & glue sticks – use hot glue on faux leather or fabric and E6000 on genuine leather bags
- fun iron on patches
- Plan out your design by placing the iron on patches on your purse in a design that you like.
- Once the design is established, hot glue them on! Note: faux leather (like this bag we used) reacts better to hot glue. If you’re using a genuine leather purse, you may want to use E6000 glue to attach the patches.
- ROCK IT with any outfit!
