Sewing: A Real Life Survival Skill Embroidered Patch



In stock

Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

Hooray! This item ships free to the US.

  • Handmade

Designed as a Sew On patch… after all, we are celebrating sewing … it could also easily be used as iron-on by applying fusible seam tape or fusible web to the back.

Our original design heralds YOU as a Maker: an important part of an important movement. There was a time when it was NECESSARY to know how to create things for yourself: to cook from scratch, repair rather than buy new, grow your own food, and – yes – to sew! These are the Real Life Survival Skills. Now is the time to remember, to re-learn, to reach out and teach others. Shout it from the rooftops, “I SEW. I’M READY.”

The patch is very stable yet still flexible enough to apply to a variety of surfaces and projects. Add one to a jacket, backpack, tote, sewing machine cover, caddy organizer, anywhere you want to show your sewing pride!

A Sewing Survival patch would be a great gift for yourself and all your sewing pals!
