A large order of 35 patches for an etsy customer I just finished today.
This took quite a bit of thread and embroidery felt to make, not to mention hours. The average patch takes about 30-45 minutes to make. Then there's some time invested in cutting away all remaining thread ends with precision and afterwards I iron the patches to make them nice and flat for easy use. You do the math Want a patch yourself? You can find them in my Etsy shop: [link]
