Add personality to your clothing and accessories with these 4 fun projects.


Customized apparel is such a fun way to show off your personality and interests! You can express yourself with simple iron-on projects to personalize anything from tote bags, to hats, to t-shirts, to even shoes.

A word of caution: once you start, you may not be able to stop. Before you know it, all your plain tees and hats will be embellished with witty puns and quirky images. But who WOULDN’T like that? Keep reading below for 4 easy custom apparel projects.

Peek-a-boo pocket tee with personality

Bring whimsy to a plain pocket tee with a fun iron-on design. Leave a small portion tucked away inside the pocket for a touch of playfulness. You can’t go wrong with an animal design. If you have some drawing ability, you could even use an illustration of your pet so you’ll always have them close by!

Very punny shoes

Sassy caps show off your personality

Show off your personality with a quippy phrase like this “Just Here for the Snacks” baseball cap. This hat makes it loud and clear that you were dragged to a social event and you will just be standing by the snack table, thank you very much. What witty phrase would your hat say?

Totally fun totes

Share your passions or favorite causes to support with a tote bag like this “Plant These, Save the Bees” tote! This design is perfect for gardening enthusiasts and environmentally conscious people alike. This bag is great for toting all your daily necessities, heading to the gym, or carrying your groceries home!
