What do you do with patches?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. Like many of you, I’ve been collecting patches n stuff.

 

I’ve wanted to make a sandtrooper shirt for a while, so I took the patches off one of my old firefighter shirts and replaced them with sandy patches. Then made a pair of epaulets with the Canadian flag on them.

I’m likening the style and wore it at the last comic con while working the 501st booth.

What is everybody else doing with their patch collections? Would be great too see.

Looks awesome! I’ve been saving mine to make a leather vest with it. Awls I have left to pick up his upper and lower rockers.

I've put mine on my old punk rock jeans vest, but was also thinking about making such a shirt, looks nice!

Put them in a big Ziploc bag.
Really. I haven't done anything with them yet.
I have been considering what my mom used to do with  patches earned in Brownies/Girl Scouts. This was in the days when you were not allowed to have them on your vest. Even if we were, that's not how I roll. I hated that stupid vest. But she made me a bucket hat. And the patches that were not for the sash, went on the hat. I still have my hat. Coincidentally, the hat is orange, brown and white. 
And I think the bucket hat would be a nod to the famous bucket hat guy.

I've gotten a desert camo BDU jacket with velcro parts on it. So mine are all attached to my jacket's sleeves..
