Just crazy enough!

Several years ago I was sitting in a pub with some friends. We'd been drinking for hours and tossing ideas around for stuff. Namely me making patches. It was on that night that I decided we needed to have STEAMPUNK SCOUT MERITS. This is what being drunk gets you. I had a vision of what they'd look like, and a dream of seeing people at events wearing them. COOL!

When I started out on this adventure, I just thought I would be doing STEAMPUNK MERITS - but once I started, ideas flew at me left and right. Do people really need a patch that says SNATCHOS? in bright nacho orange? Sure! why not. So that is how it goes. 90% of the stuff you see in my shop, is just my mind tripping balls.

Tripping Balls, for me is just being in a constant state of WOAH!
I'm easily amused and amazed by everything. So take that as you will.

Tripping Balls is home to the Original Steampunk Merit Badges. First born in a pub on a drunken night of good beer and friendship in 2010.

All of my patches are machine embroidered by me. They start out as artwork - and then digitally manipulated by in my software. From there they go to the sewing machine!

My patches are not like traditional ones you would find in stores. Those usually all have what is called a Merrow Edge. Mine are all cut as closely to the satin border as possible. This means that there will be some fraying of the fabric around the edges. This just makes them more punk rock! It should be noted also that patches have no iron on backing to them. They do come with matching thread so they can be sewn on.

Thanks for looking~
