Question: Is it ok if we don't tag the patches with our user name as long as we send a card? I'm just thinking that the recipients might want to use them on a gift for someone else and while our label means something to them, it might not to the next person.

this is my take on it but everyone else is free to put their two cents in and generally all the people I've met on craftster tend to be co-operative so I'm sure it will all work out.

what I meant by tag is sign your work preferable tastefully and with stitches...like signed artwork...so years from now when I'm famous you be able to prove you have an original early stitch project by me Cheesy..no just kidding but I do hope you all get famous and leave me with priceless patches Wink from your early days...if not at least  if I'm making something for someone else they know I didn't do it Smiley

everybody else feel free to offer your opinions...

Are there any photos here at Craftster (or elsewhere) that show what these patches are supposed to be like? Not exactly like, obviously, but I work best when I can see something Smiley

Why yes I do! Cheesy  The first picture in this one has a great example of a felt patch...

Although I usually like to leave a little more felt around the design so there's plenty of room to stitch it to something else.
Here's another good example (3rd picture down)...

And this is a good example of fabric patches...

She just took them all and sewed them together like patchwork.
I'm pretty partial to this one...  Grin
