Description

A quirky sew-on patch based on the one of the eldest form of runic alphabet used in North-West Europe. Perfect to put on clothing, bags, cushions, books, iPad covers, as embellishments in quilts or scrapbooks, on cards and more. Worthy of a Viking!

Each letter has slightly different dimensions (listed in detail below), is made with polyester thread, and can be customised with different colours for the body and the edge. Letters will be embroidered on a coloured felt of your choice and cut out with a wide edge.

Please leave instructions in the box at the checkout or send me a message with the colours and letters chosen.

If you require more letters than are available, or a combination of small and large runes, please contact me and I will create a custom listing for you. Processing time may be longer for large orders.

If you require the whole set, please see my other listing: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/263973358/elder-futhark-embroidered-sew-on-patches

FAQs

Yes, you can!

Many of my listings contain a photo of a thread colour card. Just pick your colours and tell me their numbers and I will make the magic happen.

The same goes for the background - if you wish a different colour of felt, many of my listings have a photo of the many felts available. Just chose one you like better and let me know!
Yes, I can!

Almost all of my cosplay designs can be made much bigger or smaller, while other items can be scaled up or down by about 10%, all up to a maximum of 28 cm x 20 cm (10 '' by 7 ''). Some of the non-cosplay designs have much bigger or much smaller versions available - contact me and I'll check it for you!
Yes, I can!

The image has to be yours or from public domain. Send me the image and I'll do my best! I have had the best results with not very complicated designs with bold lines.
2 - 4 weeks, depending on where you are.

Current processing (making) time on almost all my items is 2 weeks as we're catching up after a short holiday abroad. This means it takes me 2 weeks to prepare your order before it's ready to be posted. Once I post it, if you chose standard shipping, it should take about 2 days to reach you in UK, up to 5 business days to get to you in Europe, and about 7 business days to arrive everywhere else. This doesn't include any delays caused by customs or slow local post distribution.
Yes!

There are a few things you can do to get your items faster:

a) If you'd like me to make them up to 3 days faster, just leave a note in the box at the checkout when do you need them by;

b) if you'd like me to put your order at the front of the queue and make it within 3 days, purchase the Rush Order listing with your items. Please see the details of how it works inside that listing.

c) if you'd like your items to travel faster once they are shipped, choose the appropriate shipping option at the checkout. If you're in UK, choose Special Delivery for a next day post. If you're anywhere else, unfortunately the only faster option is a DHL courier - the tracking option doesn't provide faster postage, only shows us where your items are.
