Purpleshark patch Review


Hello Lovelies! 
I'm here today to tell you all about Iron on patches from PurpleSharks

I am a sucker for anything that's going to make any of my clothes look super cute and unique so when I seen that Alex from PurpleSharks was looking for people to review her patches, I jumped at the chance! All the patches are cute in design so it was hard for me to choose two but eventually I chose the melting lips one and the Go away heart. Both are equally stunning and will add a lovely pop of colour to whatever I choose to put them on. 

I have recently ordered a black backpack and I know that these patches will look so cute on it, as I am still waiting for it to arrive I will update this post with pictures of these patches on it when it comes. 


When the patches arrived I loved how vibrant they looked, the colour certainly popped and I love the black outline. The quality is amazing, they aren't flimsy little patches, but are very thick and feel compact ( I hope this makes sense haha ) But they feel amazing quality.



On the back of the patches is the glue that's going to attach them to your item of choice. Now, with patches it's important to figure out which one you have as you can get a few different ones. These are Iron on ones and you should make sure you don't applies these to silk or any kind of material that will be ruined with heat! Once you have your patch on your chosen item it's recommended that you also sew them on for extra hold and that is exactly what I'll be doing. Although the will stick when Ironed on it's better to take extra precautions to make sure they stick on. 


For a full guide on how to use these patches or any other kind for that matter, please see HERE and I've also found this youtube video to help you visually, Please see HERE (Please note that in the video there is a protective backing on the patch but these ones didn't come with one)


These patches come in at £3.00 each and PurpleSharks has a huge array of different designs you can choose from, Their shipping is £1 which is really good and it would be worth getting a few at a time. With lot's of cute and sassy patches that will satisfy the unicron addict in you or help you show your love for cats, whatever it is you're looking for I'm sure you'll be able to find it. 




I am so excited to add these patches to the bag I have ordered to give it a pop of colour. I can really see myself turning it into a bag that will showcase an array of patches. I really can't wait to update you all on how these patches looked when applied to the bag. 

I am honestly so surprised at the quality of these embroidery patches, they feel sturdy and not like they will be ruined easily. It's a great way to get creative with your clothing, Embroidery seems to be in at the moment within the fashion world with the likes of new look, river island and more all sporting some super cute clothing that's quirky, but why pay the prices for them when you can simply update your wardrobe with adding patches like these? You can inject some colour and give TLC to those shirts/tops/bags/jackets etc... that need some sprucing up.

  4. They look wickedly cool! I have some shirts that they would match with perfectly, like a jeans shirt or maybe my dark coloured one that has more of a badass vibe to it already
