Over the summer I interned for a politically interesting organization. In the course of the summer we attended many events full of like-minded individuals. At one of these events I bought a bunch of political buttons. I was really excited to display my buttons, but was worried about having them on my backpack where I can't see them.
A local bookstore that I went to with some friends had been giving out canvas bags printed with their information with purchases. I liked the bookstore, but I have a problem with being a walking advertisement.
To remedy the two situations I sewed a Lucky Jackson-style patch to cover the advertisement. It's a political statement of it's own, and now my pins have a pretty home! Now all I need is a patch and a few pins from this awesome shop for the other side, and I'll be content.
Oh, and here's something cool- the patch is a pocket! So if I decide that I want to go back to that store after all, I can still read the information.
