avocado canvas pouch

Give your pouch some panache by adding a bit of paint and the cutest little applique! Yes, this itsy-bitsy avocado is pretty irresistible, but we have a ton of adorable patches to choose from – Rainbow! Cactus! T-Rex! We know you’ll find the right one for you.
Step 1
Plan out where you’d like to add color to your canvas pouch and section off that area with painter’s tape. You might color-block the bottom, like we’ve done, or create your own painted pattern, it’s up to you!
 
TIP: Be sure to press down along the tape’s edges with your fingers to make sure paint can’t seep underneath.
Step 2
Paint the taped-off area of your pouch until it’s completely covered. Make a quick check and touch up any spots, if you need to. Peel away the tape and let the pouch dry completely. 
Step 3
Decide where you’d like to place the patch (we put ours smack dab in the center of the blank area) and use an iron to affix it to the pouch. Be sure to adjust your iron’s heat and steam levels according to the instructions that come with the patch. Once your patch has cooled, you’re all done!
 
TIP: To help protect the patch from the iron’s heat, place an ironing cloth or bandana over it as you press.
