Ok. I admit. Im really addicted to patches. Patches for bands, ideas, or just images. I sew them on my vest, my pants, my hoodies, my backpack....You get the idea.
And a lot of us know how to make them! Screen printing, stencils, freezer paper, freehanded painting, embroidery...We know how to get it done!

So what if we all had a little patch-addicts anon, and made each other some sweet patches?

I think it would be cool if we kept it small, say, 10-15 people, and we made a patch for each person? I know that's a lot, but we might be able to make the same design twice even?  That way we also get a broad variety of patches as well.

If you think that that's a bad idea and everyone should just have one partner, thats cool too.  I just thought it might be more fun this way.

So are you in?

im always down for some patch crafting! i must say though... making 10 or 15 patches is no problem but sending 15 little packagess plus Dcs is way too pricey for me. so smaller groups, or even better would be to just make a bunch for one person. i prefer the.. lets say intimacy of one on one swapping:) and getting a big fat envelope full of patches sounds really exciting. and it would give partners a chance to discover new bands and/or political ideas, etc.

I like the smaller group idea.  I totally understand what you mean about sending 15 packages!  That's why i figured we'd just send them in standard envelopes, not packages, much like the Post Secret swaps?
But if the traditional one on one swapping is preferred, that's totally ok!

PS, if its just you and me, I say we go personal swap haha

Can I get in on this? It sounds fun and I need more patches! I have over a week before I leave for college and I have nothing to do so if I could make them all this week that would be awesome Cheesy

Yup, I'm the third! Cheesy 3-way personal swap sounds good to me.  I've never done a personal swap but it seems pretty simple, how does it work with 3 people? I guess we could each make 2 or 3 for each person?  Should we do a little list of bands/stuff we like?

Oh, okay cool! I haven't done a personal swap yet either. But I was just discussing it with somebody who was interested in doing one with me, I believe we just make a S/O date and clarify what exactly or how much crafts we will be sending, and then ta da.

Yea everyone sending to each other sounds good to me! When do you both have free time to start? I'm currently in five swaps and I'm juggling school and trying to find a job, so if we were to start soon, a long crafting time would be good for me.

I am about to start school so starting now and having a long crafting time works for me.

Stuff I like: Green Day, Propagandhi, No Use for a Name, Bad Religion, Pennywise, Spermbirds, Unseen, Useless ID, Arrogant SOBs (if someone made me a patch for them it would be awesome Cheesy), Bomb the Music Industry!, Ramones, Pulley, Screeching Weasel, Suicide Machines, 6 Pack Deep, Bildo and the Reacharounds, adbuster magazine and that sort of thing, puns, and a lot more.
Stuff I don't like: anarchy, antisemitism, horror movies

Love Arrogant SOB'S, but you should PM everyone involved with your address and what you like what you want, etc. I don't see a problem in you joining, wasteraab, if everyones fine with sending out three packages? Everyone should agree on a crafting time, and that there really going to S/O, etc., etc. before we really start.

Or if more people are interested we can just have a public swap! Maybe once its actually open for sign ups more people will join. I'll organize it too.

Im also in school, so long crafting time is good.  I propose we use that traditional swap form and fill that out, but just add whatever we think is important.
Since there are four, we could pair up and it can be a mini swap, but still private if we want.
We could do it via email so we have a way to exchange photos?

Just throwing ideas out there C:

BudgelsIsCool and I have already PMed each other band interests and etc. I've sent a PM to wasteraab to see if she/he wants to join officially, then we'll figure out what would be best based on the response.

Blergh, this is a little hard to figure out-
How many patches does everyone want to make? Or should we just leave it up to partners to decide?
If that is, we have come to an conclusion to just pair up? Or is a group swap still in discussion?

Since theres already four people involved I think it would just be easier to do a public swap, and then maybe more people will join. Since its hard for everyone to get organized and agree on something. I'll organize it, and everyone will get one partner and it would be a... 3 or 4 point swap? So about three or four patches. Sound good?

No! Well maybe, there's still a chance. But I'm going to organize an open swap, because it's difficult to get everyone to sort of officially agree on something. I'm still waiting on feedback for two things, but I sent and received for both of those swaps quiet awhile ago, so hopefully i'll get the feedback soon, then I'll have an open space to start organizing this.

Now off topic, what kind of material do you guys use to make patches on?

Yay more interest!  Now how big do you guys want the swap to be? Should we do it point based or should I set a requirement of patches? If so, I was thinking either three or five. But then I realized that a lot of people want or prefer back patches or a combination of both? Which is why I thought to do it point based... 1 point= 1 small patch and 2= 1 Back Patch

Any other ideas?

Points sounds good, like everyone has to make 5 points worth.  It wouldn't be too big of a commitment but it wouldn't be super stressful, ya know? I hate signing up for a swap only to be like OMG NOW I HAVE TO CRAFT FOR 10 HOURS EVERY DAY FOR THE NEXT MONTH.

In regards to materials, I usually just do t-shirt fabric or denim or whatever I have...I got this teal button-down for a dollar yesterday that seems like it'd make nice patches. Denim is nice because it's thicker but whatever works Cheesy

You guys! I'm a big dummy. I was re-reading over all the rules and was about to officially start this swap, when I realized... you have to be 18 to organize a swap. I'm about to turn 18 in three weeks.... I sent question to the help desk asking if I could get special permission to organize a swap a little early, since it's a smaller swap and I have all positive feedback from quite a few swaps- so heres to hopping.

If no, would you guys mind waiting about three more weeks? Or someone else could organize if you guys want to start now.

Yes, more interest! I promise this will be happening towards the end of the month. Super excited. My good friends family do a lot of stencils and patches and yesterday I saw her newest patch which was just this deformed face figure with huge bulgy eyes and it said 'OH NO!' I loved it! It would be awesome if patches of just random, gross, creepy figures were made for this swap as well:D
