I cut 2" squares from the fabric and patched them together. I didn't line up the seams to enhance the patchwork-y feel. Also because I didn't feel like getting up to get my pins to pin the seams together.
I ironed on the fusible web and then printed a "4" (arial block, at 550 font size), which I traced onto the paper backing. I cut it out, peeled off the paper, and ironed it onto the shirt. I tried really hard to make it straight but it looks crooked to me.
Then I did a zig-zag stitch all around the edges to help it stay on.

There are many things I would do differently next time, among them measuring with a ruler, looking up directions online, and not telling Craig what I'm doing (I was literally about to put it on the strap and he said, "now I can never use it, it's too girly." good grief. It's blue, for crying out loud).
