Embroidered patches are a common way to show an affiliation to a certain club, group, or organization. They can be commonly found, won, and bought in multiple places for cheap prices. This makes them a very accessible and inexpensive craft item in which to get creative with.
Many embroidered patches come from being a part of a club- such as martial arts or even a girl scout club. While many kids and teenagers don’t think twice before throwing their old embroidered patches away after they get older, parents should hold on to them for different occasions. A good idea, for instance, would be to include the patches in scrapbooks to remember one’s children through valuable reminders. This can prove to be just as beneficial for parents as it is for the children when they grow up to be adults.
An embroidered patch has great use in a scrapbook, but they also make great decorations to quilts and pillows. Finding enough of the right embroidered patches might prove to be a problem at first, but visiting the local general store or ordering some online can make a quilt laden with a child’s favorite superheros, cars, ships, or trains. This can give a child a very welcoming quilt, at very little cost to the creator.
One of the more simple and cost effective projects is to simply sew an embroidered patch onto a car seat cover. This is a very easy way to express one’s self without having to go through too much trouble or expense. In many cases this can be a humorous addition- ad the embroidered patch may be something such as a Superman logo. This is great for younger crowds who like to humor their passengers.
It has also been increasingly popular for embroidered patches to go straight onto gym bags and backpacks, as compared to actually using them to decorate apparel. Nothing says tough like adding a martial arts embroidered patch to a gym bag. Classmates will be equally as impressed of youngsters who may have their favorite cartoon character or superhero attached to their binder or backpack.
If all other options are exhausted, and nothing else is found, an embroidered patch is a great item to put on display. You may put it behind a glass showcase, on an entertainment center, or at one’s desk to help decorate and create a homely feel. Even putting them next to trophies is a good idea, because after all, they often recognize achievements just as trophies do.
Embroidered patches have a lot more use than most consumers would think. Whether they are used as trophies, decorations on blankets or quilts, or even to add a bit of humor to one’s life- the embroidered patch has much to be marveled over. The trick is to keep creative, shop around garage sales, and ultimately let one’s mind go crazy in the many different ways an embroidered patch can be used. As they say, the sky is the limit- and with home crafts, anything goes!
