It’s back to school time around here. Every year I dread just a bit when it’s time to turn in the beach bag for the book bag. To make the transition easier and more fun this year we opted to keep our beach bag and fill it with flair – to create a book bag that will look festive all fall long.
Instead of buying patches we created our own! They are simple to make and a fun way to turn any back to school item into a personal piece of flair. From cactus, to popsicles, to #HomeMeansNevada, these patches are everything I love in life. Create your own patches that showcase your current obsessions or take inspiration from ours below.
Personality Patch Book Bag
To create the personality patch book bag you will need:
- A beach, or book bag
- Printable iron-on paper
- A few great designs for patches
- Paint + a brush
1. Print out the patches you’ve designed or get inspired by our designs and freehand a set of your own personality patches on the iron on paper with a black sharpie.
2. Use paint to color in each of the patches to complete the design.
3. Cut out each patch and iron on the bag according to the package directions in a fun configuration.
