Step 2: Place the letters how you want them.

DIY: Floral Patched Jeans

Seems like patches are everywhere since spring of last year. And they don’t look like they’re going anywhere. One of the more popular incarnations of this trend are the floral patched jeans. Watch this video to see how you make your own and scroll down for more detailed instructions.

What you’ll need:

A Pair of Jeans

Iron On Flower Patches – We used this, this and this

Iron

You can also keep a cotton cloth handy for using over the patches while you iron.

Step 1: Place the patches where you want them. It might help to wear the jeans and mark the spot where you want the patches to finally be.

Step 2: Using an iron on its hottest setting, press down on each patch for 20 seconds at a time. Repeat if necessary. Using a cotton cloth over the patches while you iron will protect your jeans and your patches. Do not use steam for this step. Repeat on the other leg.

Tip: Let the glue cool before moving your jeans around or wearing them.

That’s it. You’re done!

DIY: Rose Embroidered Vans

What do you do when a cool new pair of shoes hits the market and everyone has a pair? You customize yours so you can be a dolphin in a sea of sharks. The new Vans Old Skool sneakers are ultra cool and since they’re unisex it seems like EVERYONE is wearing them. And they should. But what if you could take it to the next level with a feminine touch with this rose embroidered patch.

What you’ll need:

Vans (or any sneakers you wanna switch up)

Rose Iron-on Patches

Iron

Glue (If the patch is being stubborn in places)

Scissors (If you want to trim the patch to fit the shoes)

Also keep a cotton cloth handy for the ironing part.

Step 1: Decide how you want the patch placed on the shoe. I chose this single rose embroidered patch to be placed along the side of the shoes.

Step 2: Making sure the patch is where you want it, place the cotton cloth over it. Press down with the iron, supporting inside with your hand. Hold down for 20 seconds. Repeat if necessary.

Step 3: Do it on the other side and repeat with the other shoe.

And you’re done!

DIY OMG Sweatshirt

Candy of Taylor and Demolish recently made a sweatshirt with supplies from our store, and we loved it so much we had to share. She was inspired by Acne’s “OMG” sweater, and used iron-on letters from our store to create the same effect. The collegiate feel is perfect for fall, but we also love the fun quirky aspect of the sweater. See the tutorial below, and stop by Taylor and Demolish to see more!

The inspiration:
Supplies: O, M, and G chenille heat-set letters, a sweatshirt, and an iron

1. Line up the letters where you want them on your sweatshirt.

2. With the iron on its cotton setting, place it onto each letter for about 45 seconds each. Simply hold it down, rather than moving it around.

3. Let it cool for a few minutes, then you’re ready to wear your new sweatshirt!
