I was so happy with Tiny's enjoyment of my sewing that I started on another project, using my vintage 1970s patches. The LOVE patch has never been used but the Peanuts patches have a long story. You know me. There's always a story behind my stuff.
In the early '70s Weber's bread had a giveaway of applique patches of Snoopy, the Prince of Sandwiches, and his friends. I can't even remember how many bread wrappers I had to save to send in to get the patches. It was a big battle with my mother because she always bought the cheapest brand of pasty white bread so I had to beg for Webers which she thought was too expensive. 29 cents! I really don't know how I won this battle but I did.
So I sent away the wrappers and after the 4-6 weeks of waiting time, the patches were mine. And they covered every hole on my jeans throughout my teens. If I outgrew the jeans, I would carefully snip them off and save them for the next pair.
At a point in my 20s I decided I didn't need patches on my jeans anymore. But having worked so long to earn them, they were like merit badges. I couldn't give them up. So they sat in a box.
Around 5 years ago, I bought a piece of Peanuts flannel, thinking I would make a pillow.
I had enough fabric to make two pillowcases.
Thank you Tiny for ALL the help!
