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
Step 2: Choose an Image...
First you have to choose the images you want to use. Than cut out a piece from the Iron on interfacing, slightly larger than the image.
Step 3: Press & Cut...
Iron the interfacing to the back of the image.
After the workpiece gets cold, cut out the image but let there a little edge.
Step 4: Sewing the Edge...
Sew around the patch edge (lol^^) to fix the shirt to the interfacing.
Without this step the shirt will peel off.
I should really buy myself a sewing machine, sewing by hand let me became mad, fret and bloody fingers sucks! :D
Step 5: Finished!
Now your very owen super cool vintage-style patches are ready to stitch on to your bag, jacket or everything you want.
I hope you enjoyed my little instructable.
