About this project

The Project

I've designed this embroidered patch based on the inspiration of my children and I've accepted the challenge of making it come to life. Your pledges will go towards receiving real patches made of this design.

The Design

For some reason I love patches. I have patches on my laptop, jackets, caps, and even my ice chest has a patch on it! I am also a proud father of three elementary aged boys and they have enjoyed my patch collection as well. Last year we sewed loop velcro on to their backpacks and messenger bags so they could wear their Star Wars and TransFormer patches to school. My boys also love to build with Legos. We have thousands of Lego pieces scattered everywhere in our house and everyday they are building something out of them. So, one day this summer I had the idea to design a velcro backed patch with a Lego brick and the word "Build" underneath. The Lego brick on the design is a corner piece, representing the cornerstone of a foundation. I believe that these patches represent much more than building blocks and toys. It is an inspiration to those of us who love to build. Are you a builder?

The Patches

The patches are made out of two different materials. Embroidery and PVC Rubber.  

Embroidery: The 3 inch wide by 2 inch tall patch is made out of embroidery. It has a piece of hook velcro sewn to the back of the patch. The patch can be attached to any item that has loop side velcro. The velcro backing CAN be removed with a seam ripper and can be sewn onto clothing if the velcro attachment method is not preferred.

PVC: The 3 inch wide by 2 inch tall patch is made from PVC which is a type of rubber. There is a channel that runs around the outer edge of the patch which contains the thread for the hook velcro backing. Removal of the velcro back is not recommended.

Where can I put them?

  • Any clothing or gear with loop velcro already attached.
  • You can sew the loop fabric panel onto anything you desire.
  • Or, you can use adhesive backed loop velcro in the same manner you would use a decal and attach them to almost anything, like a guitar.

How will my pledge be used?

Your money will be used for manufacturing the embroidered and PVC patches. The patch manufacturers I'm working with require minimum orders and the more we are able to order up front, the more the cost is lowered per patch. There are also additional charges for multiple colors and the addition of the hook velcro backing. Additionally, a 3 inch by 2 inch piece of loop velcro fabric will be included allowing you to sew the loop material onto any type of garment or gear that you wish. An adhesive backed loop velcro piece may also be included depending on the popularity of the project. This would allow you to attach the patch to just about anything, similar to a decal.
