The prettiest patches for your summer DIY project
Erica Domesek, founder of P.S. I made this... (only the greatest destination for DIY project inspiration) designed a collection of limited edition DIY patches that are launching today, July 10th. In collaboration with the lifestyle brand Indego Africa and a collection of 28 talented female artisans in Rwanda, the collection includes 8 vibrant 3-inch iron-on patches.
Available in sets of two, the patches are now available on Indego Africa's website for $45, and come with DIY ideas from Erica herself! What could possibly be better? They're perfect for dressing up a backpack or jacket, even worn as part of a necklace. One of Erica's DIY ideas incorporates two of our favorite things: backpacks and DIY!
The stunning collection of patches are inspired by Africa's rich culture and landscape, as well as Erica's passion for vivid color, bold objects and beautiful animals. (We're obsessed with the pineapple patch and also the giraffe!) All profits from sales go towards education programs for the women Indego Africa partners with.

Indego Africa is an innovative nonprofit social enterprise & lifestyle brand that supports women in Rwanda through economic empowerment and education. Indego Africa partners with cooperatives of female artisans and sells their beautifully handcrafted products worldwide.
Erica and Barbara "Babs" Burchfield of Conscious Commerce also traveled to Rwanda to meet the women creating the patches. Watch the behind-the-scenes footage below:
