As lots of you probably know, Disney designed hundreds of unit/squadron patches during WWII. Combining multiple interests (Militaria, sewing, and sometimes Disney), I started hand-embroidering patch repros. All started because a young man on the military forum I'm on had been discussing his Grandfather (who served in a neighboring squadron to my GGGUncle in Alaska during WWII) and how he was not able to get a patch for his Grampa's squadron because the design was Disney. For people like him, sadly Disney design patches are doom when wanting them for sentimental reasons, as they are not only collected by military collectors, but also Disneyana collectors! So, I thought why couldn't I make him a patch? I'd never embroidered before, but I love hand sewing and do quite a lot of small hand work. So, I printed off a picture, drew my base lines on my wool felt and started in on it! This was done with only me and a needle. No machine is involved at any point in making this! This is my in-progress patch next to a picture of an original WWII patch: Here is my finished patch, which took well over 20 hours of work to create: Thought I would share this! Since then, I've done 26 embroidered patches over the pats two years, several more of them Disney designs. So, anyone on here into Disney WWII patch designs? There are some super fun ones!
