Crafty business: how to make your own morale patch
You have seen them all over the place. You may even have a few (or a bunch) already. Morale patches can be fun to wear, look at and even collect. A part of the appeal of morale patches is that they often times represent your interests or thoughts in creative or comedic ways—commonly bringing a smile to anyone who relates to its design or message. That’s probably why they’re called morale patches in the first place.
The search for the next morale patch to be added to your collection is always an ongoing process. Although it’s great to collect ready-made patches, what if you have a particular design that you want to make into a patch?
