Here at the Thomas house, we’ve got that pesky travel itch. And I bet you can’t guess the destination we’re itching to travel to. Okay, you’re right: it’s Disney! We are taking a trip to Disney World next month, and I am so excited! So, in a effort to get some of my anticipatory energy out, I’ve been working on some fun Disney-themed crafts. Check out the new, DIY Disney patches I put together, and download the printable template to make your own!
A couple years ago, hubby and I took a trip to Disneyland, and I had the idea to create some DIY patches to accessorize my backpack. I loved how they turned out, and ended up getting tons of compliments on them while we were there. So I thought it would be fun to do another round of patch designs for this trip!
I even created a set of patches based on Disney villains, so be sure to check those out as well!
In the download is a template including all the little pieces for each patch design along with an image with suggested colors/layout. Feel free to get creative, though; based on your own color preferences and what you have available!

Which design is your favorite? I really like how Mulan turned out: Davian (my four-year-old) is definitely partial to the Stitch design.
Whether you’ve got a fun family trip coming up, or are just looking for an affordable, cute craft, I hope you enjoy making these DIY Disney patches as much as I have!
