My hand-embroidered 349th Bomb Squad patch - 4" Mickey Mouse and Pluto dropping bombs


Recommended Posts

Here is one of my recent patches . . . hand embroidered, no machine used! Just me and a needle! This is a 4" patch for the 349th Bomb Squadron. Features Mickey Mouse riding Pluto and dropping bombs. I've wanted to do a Mickey patch for ages! This is actually being done as a trade. I am going to sew it onto a circle of the brown, creating a small rim so that it can be worn and only sewing onto the rim. The photo of the back is from when I was just finishing the rim on the bottom of the cloud. So, not much changed, but I haven't taken a new pic of the back.


This has over 20 hours of work in it.

Another great example of your outstanding work, Elizabeth! Mark the back "made by ........" so down the road a collector won't get the wrong idea! Keep 'em coming! Bobgee

Thanks, Guys! Actually, I make a little Made By tag for my patches. this one is actually going to be mounted on a slightly larger brown wool piece, so that the wearer can sew on the rim, rather than on this patch. I'll attach the tag to that. :)

Thanks! No, this isn't my first. Actually this is about my 20th embroidered and/or appliqued patch repro.


Here was my first patch ever:



Here is another I did last Christmas:



A pair from last year:

Just to finish . . . here are what I've done the most of, as everyone seems to want these!






That gives you a nice cross-section! Right now I am working on a 5" patch of the 336th Rocketeers. :) I love doing the patches, but don't ever need patches myself. Most of these have been presents for forum members or done on commission or for trades! :) I just love hand-sewing! :)
