DIY Rose Patch Tee Inspired by Aimee ~ Song of Style

I’ve been peeping lots of fun patch tees lately, some randomly placed – and others specifically placed over the chest area (ahem boobs) and actually, I think it’s pretty cute.

Aimee from Song of Style created and sells a Rose Tits Tee which has pretty red roses embroidered to the front of pink and white t-shirts which she released last October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (she donates 50% of the proceeds from the Rose Tits T-shirt to support women with breast cancer), which is amazing… BUT I love the idea and just happen to have picked up a handful of black and silver near-vintage rose patches from a local thrift store last year and now I finally have a use for two of them.

I have to say that this rose patch tee came out even cuter than I thought it would BUT I think it’s important that the t-shirt is oversized and fits loosely, or else it becomes a little too provocative and loses its irony… in my opinion, of course. It may be too much for some tastes regardless, BUT it’s cute and I love the idea of wearing it for Breast Cancer Awareness, whether its pink or not, I think the point is obvious.

Here’s What You Need…

Steps…

Try on your shirt and mark where you want your roses to go

NOTE: be sure to wear the bra you’d most likely wear with the shirt, or if braless, mark accordingly

Turn your iron on (follow iron-on instructions if they come with your patches)

Place your patches on your tee, cover with a protective layer of thin material (like a cotton sheet), press and hold your iron down over the patches for 40-60 seconds without moving your iron back and forth.

NOTE: Don’t use any steam

Turn your tee inside out and repeat the step above.

NOTE: I found that I could move my iron back and forth while inside out and it helped set the adhesive a little better.

Allow the applique or embroidered patch to cool down.

 

And… Voila!
