Picture 12/28: Patches

December 28
(picture 362 of 365)

Wanna see the beginning of my latest little collection?

Yeah, I've been finding old seed corn hats here and there for 25-50 cents each.

If the patch is unique, clean and sewn on (rather than glued or ironed), I'll buy the hat and bring it home.

A few quick cuts of the thread holding the patch onto the hat and "voila" (note: pronounce as "wall-aaaah").... another add to the collection.

At some point, I'd like to mount a dozen or so patches inside a frame as a type of mounted collage.

That's not "corny", right?

Out for now......
