I'm not sure if they have exactly what you are looking for but I suggest www.strapworks.com
I know the have lots of strappings and supplies and for really really reasonable prices.  Let me know if that helps!

I was wondering if there was an opportunity for them to get something like that!  Maybe her daughter just hasn't gotten there yet.  Hopefully soon- sewing patches is not the most thrilling thing.

hey thank you so much for this tute!  I had to read it a few times for it to click (like someone else mentioned), but that is just the way I work.  When it did click, I realized how crazy simple it is!  Note to anyone else trying this for the first time- be sure you cut the rectangle to the final size..not the size of the zipper itself! (this was probably just me not really thinking before acting)

thanks again for the tutorial!

$1.00 each 10 years ago? Well ok then! 
Thank you for the wisdom! I appreciate it!

Just because she is a friend and I am not a professional, I'm thinking about going 50cents/patch

The Goodwill Super-store by the Northeast Mall is pretty awesome.  I even found a whole bunch of fabric there once!
Also, "Graceful Buys" in Grapevine is small but reasonably priced and you can find some pretty neat stuff.

A lady at work was paying her tailor $1.00/patch for her daughter's girl scout uniform and some uniform for her son.  When she found out I could sew, she asked me to start doing it instead.  The tiny patches do take a decent amount of time to put on and I use my own thread.  So, as much as I would like to do it for free, I do think I should charge a little bit.  I honestly have no idea here!  I will be doing it whenever there are a handful of new patches to put on.  This time for example, I put on 18 patches total.  At the tailor, she would be paying $18.00 which seems crazy.  Any ideas?
