Adding Patches for Style

One of my favorite ways to embellish clothing for my boys is to add a patch.  It's crazy easy and really cute.  

Remember these name patches from a couple of years ago?  (Yeah, that coat went from Rex to Baden and it's already small on Baden now.)

I picked up some Superman patches way back when I was in New York (at MJ Trimmings) and then I scored a simple jacket at Target for 50% off.  

Some patches come as iron on patches.  These did, but I never really trust an iron-on patch in the wash. I iron it on and then stitch around it as well.  If you don't have a sewing machine, you really can easily stitch around it by hand.  If the patch isn't iron on, you can use some fabric glue or heat 'n bond to get it to stay in place and then stitch around it.

Just add simple patch and then you have a fun one-of-a-kind jacket.

Here's another patch from back in the day.  He's grown a bit :)

If you're looking for name patches, I would check eBay.  There are a lot of people who do custom ones, but I always liked the vintage funny ones.  And for more specific patches I'm sure there are a billion stores online that sell them.

Thanks for dropping in.

- Did you see this Lego pencil holder from a baby food jar HERE?  So fun and easy.

- Contemplating doing THIS to our kitchen table.  Am I crazy?  I think it's pretty cool, but my husband isn't a fan and his vote definitely counts.
