Today I’m taking my #patchgame to another level with these amazing DIY Patch Covered Purses. I’m in love with them and I could not wait to share them with you all. I have been hoarding patches like a crazy person as I’m obsessed with them. I love them just as much as I love pins. The patch and pin collecting is a bit out of control I will admit. I’ve got quite a collection building up and you can see just some of them below. That’s not all the patches I had sad to say. I’m a patch hoarder and I’m not afraid to admit it. Since I’m also a shop-a-holic, I have been seeing all these patch covered purses around for ridiculous amounts of money. I refuse to pay hundreds for something I can make myself! I figured I have some awesome patches, I can make an amazing patch covered purse for myself and share it with you.
To make this fun and easy to make patch covered purse you’ll need:
- You’ll need some round purses. I got mine at Forever 21 online, but they don’t seem to have them anymore. This one is similar or you can use any plain colored purse you have.
- Fabric Fusion Glue or Iron.
- Lots of Patches. I got mine from all my favorite patch shops like Ello There, Wildflower + Co, Winks For Days, Chris Uphues, Coucou Suzette, Asos, These Are Things, my gal pal Jade Boylan, Twerkstorian, Little Arrow Shop, Treat YoSelf Motel, Fenyx Design Shop, Big Bud Press, Hollywood Mirror, Ello There, Frog & Toad Press, Lucky Horse Press, Rocky Monkei, Patch Nation (need I say more), Mokuyobi, Fairy Cakes, Kodiak Milly, Band of Weirdos, Darling Distraction, Valley Cruise Press, and La Barbuda!
You can iron you patches onto your bag following the directions that come with your patches or you can just glue your patches on with some Fabric Fusion glue.
You simply organize the patches how you’d like them to look on each bag and begin to place some glue on the back of each patch. You’ll then stick the patches onto the bag in the position you’d like.
I held them in the position for a few minutes to make sure the patches were stuck to the bag. I did three different bags since I love them so much!! I did a mean girls themed bag that you can see below.
I did a Gizmo/90’s themed bag that you can see below.
I paired it with my patch covered sweater of course.
I also made a crafty random patch bag as well.
I think the mean girls one is my favorite!
If you make this bag you can definitely show of your strong patch game where ever you go! It’s a fun alternative to covering your jean jacket in patches.
I hope you enjoy these amazing patch covered bags as much as I do!
Don’t forget to make yourself some matching DIY Patch Sneakers too!
