We’re seeing patches everywhere these days! On jackets, jeans, backpacks and more! They add interest and color to basic pieces, and are usually packed with personality. For our latest DIY, our passion for patches led us to create a denim jacket decked out in military patches.
What You’ll Need:

Central Intelligence Agency Appliqué
101st Airborne Division Appliqué
Black Hawk Appliqué
Embroidered Iron-On American Flag

Iron1. Place the patches on the jacket in your desired pattern.
