Bunny Patch Shirts

Free Custom Photo Calendars

Use iron-on patches to cover up stains on favorite shirts or to decorate a plain one! We were expecting to find and use the old-fashioned denim patches we grew up with, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that the world of iron-on patches has come a long way! Find decorative patch squares in 8x10 sheets that you can cut out and customize at your local craft store.

What You’ll Need:
*Shirts – you can buy plain shirts, or like we did, use a favorite shirt that has a stain on it
*Iron on patches
*Bunny template (optional, attached below)
*Iron

Preparation:
*Gently trace your shape onto the back of the iron on patches and cut them out. Since it’s April and nearing Easter, we used the bunny template (attached below) as a stencil and cut out a bunny silhouette to iron on to our white t-shirt.

Activity:


*Since our shirt had multiple stains, we ironed on some extra flower patches we found on sale to cover up the smaller stains all around. Be sure to follow the directions when ironing on all your patches.
*The boys couldn’t be left out…a favorite t-shirt with my son’s name on it was “ruined” until we found a camo patch that I cut into star shapes and ironed on.

*Send us a picture of your kids and their “new” shirts we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
