Hand Embroidered Punch-Needle Patches

I was inspired by some of the prints I started selling during 2019 and wanted to make some patches with them! The patches are made with a punch needle, which gives them a thick squishy feel. They aren’t your average patch. Each one is finished with a fabric sticker on the back, which means they will hold on to your garment/bag better than iron-on backings, and the sticker allows for more precision with placement. These patches are about giving old threads a new lease of life. I have been donated many cotton threads in all sorts of colours from my Grandma and her friends. But because the threads aren’t in my brand colours, I’ll be solely using them for patches and hanging decorations! Shop: https://sophierawlingson.com/Shop
