upcycle

Upcycle an old backpack with some fun appliques! Let the kids pick out their appliques and use one of our four methods to attach. 

Materials

  • Backpack
  • Appliques
  • Heat n Bond Ultra (optional)
  • 606 Adhesive Spray (optional)
  • Embroidery Thread & Needle (optional)

Options

  1. Use heat n bond ultra to create a stronger bond between the applique and backpack. Trace your applique on the heat n bond and cut out. Press your applique to the heat n bond and peel off the paper backing. Cover with a pressing cloth and hold and press for 20 seconds or until adhered.
  2. Use a piece of cardboard or newspaper to protect your work surface. Place your applique face down and spray with 606 Adhesive Spray. Place onto your backpack, cover with a pressing cloth and hold and press for 20 seconds or until adhered.
  3. If your applique has a good border you can embroider it onto the backpack with a blanket stitch.
  4. You can use the natural adhesive from the applique also. On rough or thick fabrics it might not adhere as well.
