Give your old and beloved shirts a second life by making some very nice looking vintage-style patches out of them.

Step 1: what you need...

To make the patches you'll need:

-some old shirts

-Iron on (non)woven interfacing (stiff, but not to hard)

-sewing kit or sewing machine (pro tip!)


-electric iron and ironing board

-dish towel
<p>So how is this kind of patch holding up? After 2 years is it still in tact? Did it bleak? Did you have any problems with it whatsoever? I would really aprieciete a response because I would love to spend some money on doing this but I need to know if it will hold up. Cheers!</p>
I like this idea of making my own....until I went thru a couple t-shirts I destroyed. You've got a lot more talent than me. I'll stick to buying some <a href="http://www.americanpatch.com" rel="nofollow">custom patches</a> and using thoses. Thanks for sharing :)
Er... you may want to fix a typo in your very first paragraph...
oh...right...thanks...<br>I'll change it immediately.<br>:D
MUCH better! :-)
