make your own punk-ish patches and -really- bring a message to the world!
To be honest, I'm f***ig fed up with these patches you see on every little-wannabe-goth-girls bag, on every kiddy punk jacket and in every goddarn shop. Where's the original thing in having a patch with a saying on it? Got a "PEACE"-patch? Cut it, nobody recognises them any more.

Make your own patch, make it different, make it tell something...

Sorry for blurry pic again -.-

  • Step 1

    Well, grab your fabric and cut it any size and shape you want it. You really don't have to be precise. Just make sure it's big enough for your painting wish.

  • Step 2

    Sew roughly (!) around the edges, just to stop the whole piece from fuzzing. If you want fuzz, give it the space.

  • Step 3

    Grab your pen.
    Use it.
    Simple.

    Paint something.
    Write your nickname ( *yay* ).
    Tell the world a message.
    Do whatever.
    Or, as I did, put down a line from your favorite song. Hang the DJ ^^ That's from The Smiths' "Panic ( in the streets of London" ). Yay for the old stuff!

    Since I have that patch on my bag, our local clubs DJ is MUCH nicer to me. Either I scared the crap outta him, or he just likes the song as I do xD

  • Step 4

    Attach the patch to yout bag, jacket, ..., ...! Use safety pins, rough needle stitches, buttons, whatever you can find.

  • Step 5

    Wear with pride. ^^

    And laugh about all these kids carrying the "People=shit"patch around. No hard feelings if any on you does, I just can't see this thing any more. Guess most of the kids here don't even know why this patch is existing. ô.Ô

I my self like that these are now available at a lot of places cheaply, I love to use them in decoupage and scrap booking. I can't wait to make some of my own Happy

And yeah, little kids don't care what it says, as long as it looks 'cool'
I'm glad there's more people out there who care for originality Happy
