DIY Patch Laptop Case

DIY Patch Laptop Case- click through for the full tutorial! We’re back with another simple DIY project! We’ve been really into the patch trend lately. They’re showing up everywhere from denim jackets to purses. Patches are an easy way to make something generic into a custom piece that shows your personality.

For this project, we decided to jazz up a plain laptop case. There are tons of solid computer cases out there just begging for some flair. The patches we chose are all very girly and colorful. How amazing is this ice cream patch?! The fun part of this project is choosing patches that represent bits and pieces of who you are. It’s safe to say we’re now addicted to patches and will be seeking out ways to introduce them into our wardrobe!

E6000 is kind of tricky because you have to put it on both the patch and the case, wait two minutes, and then stick them together.

Step Three: After all of your patches are glued down, lay some heavy books on top of the case while the glue dries. This will just help to keep everything looking seamless.

  • Super easy and cute! So many awesome patches out there, but only so much room on a denim jacket, haha. This is a great alternate space to use them.

    I shared some of my sources for flair here if you’d like to take a look. 🙂

  • This looks like such a fun DIY and surprisingly easy to do! Will have to give this a try.

  • Oh my! I’ve never thought to do this to a laptop case. Your timing is perfect because the laptop sleeve I’m currently using does NOT fit my personality at all haha. And I can use glue instead of ironing? Even better! I guess I’d better start collecting some patches!
