Circles circles



As some of you mentioned, there's no need to have a hole in your clothes to use these patches, they just look nice as an application. You can see them here on my woolen coat. Hint: consider using the same colour of the base garment for the vertical threads of the patch. They blend in better.

###

Como algunas de ustedes mencionaron, no se necesita tener un agujero que remendar para usar estos parches, se ven bien como aplicación. Los pueden ver aquí cosidos a mi chaquetón de lana. Consejo: les aconsejo utilizar el mismo color de la prenda de base para los hilos verticales del parche. Se camuflan mejor.
