The stitching is so nice and neat on those! And, I love the vintage feel and the black and yellow (with a hint of white) color combo. What a fun idea to turn them into a window valance, too. You’ll definitely have to share pics of that once it’s finished.
And, I received to fan-freakin-tabulous science-themed patches from @marionberries!
The first thing I saw when I opened the package was this gorgeous card with a mixed media focal point. It has multiple layers and the photo doesn’t do it justice.
Next, a Comet patch! The head of the comet is made with an absolutely perfect button and the tail is stitched with a variety of threads, including metallic, to give it a glow-y look. Wait… there is thread that looks like it might glow in the dark… let me check…okay, it’s not dark enough for me to tell.
And, a ROBOT!! It’s made of beads, small stones, really cool coins, and a few other bits. I love how it almost looks like it’s made from electronics components, too (those long beads look a bit like resistors). And, it’s my first robot patch. I can’t believe that nobody made a robot for me before this.
She also used fantastic coordinating fabrics too- the background of the comet patch has constellations, and the fabrics on the robot are stars made with dots, and honeycombs with little plus signs (positive charge) inside hexagons.
Thanks so much! I really, really love them!
