Using BooHoo Shorts and Iron On Patches to Create my own Unique looking Embroidery Style Summer Shorts
In the blog post today I am going to be explaining how I managed to make these awesome, unique, and I have to say pretty cool looking embroidery style shorts.
(The Sunflower, Palm Tree and Eye were already sown on).
The original shorts are from BooHoo, I will pop a link to them at the end of the post…
(All the Patches I have had in my Treat Boxes and Artemis and Xena Box!)
The Iron On Patches have all been from past Treat Boxes, the first one I received is from a whole year ago! And it has been sat in a drawer waiting to be used.
I saw the shorts ages ago when I placed an order, to replace an old black pair. And then I had an idea! Seeing as they already had a couple of patches sown on to them, why not add to them! I decided exactly what I was going to do… and this is the result!
If you ever did this as a child, then you had a great childhood! Picking an iron patch in the local shop, taking it home and choosing an item of your clothing for it to go on to. Usually a denim jacket in the 1990’s with patches covering the back! But I wanted to spruce up these already great shorts! I hope you like what I did!
Here are the Treatbox Iron On Instructions and a closer look at the beautiful Rainbow patch that we had last year in our August 2016 box.
Here is a closer look at the Flamingo and Pineapple which were in the July 2017 box.
Recommending to use a handkerchief or an old pillow case to place over the patch while you are ironing is not only a tip but a definite necessity.
This lovely Cup Cake Iron On Patch came out of the Artemis and Xena Box I had earlier on this year in March.
Getting down to the ‘How To Do This’ Part of the blog post now, and basically just be creative! Make sure that you get patches that are good quality, and make sure you choose both areas of the fabric that are easy to iron on to, and choose a fabric that can be ironed on a high heat without it getting damaged!
Otherwise just follow the instructions carefully and make sure you do this with an adult if you’re of a young age.
My final tip is to play around before ironing anything on, you might change your mind. Imagine wearing the item and where the patches will be when you do. Once you’ve made a final decision why not ask someone in your family for their opinion, it couldn’t hurt. And remember this is a creative and fun activity you can do as a family if you all wanted to participate.

Now I’m going to show you a photo of me wearing my finished shorts! I’m really pleased with the way that they turned out.
If anyone has any questions please feel free to leave me comments, I’m happy to answer them.
