Hero SquadOur Hero Squad design is inspired by the new book series Action Figures, by Michael Bailey.  I’ve loved reading about the adventures of Carrie Hauser and her friends in the since I was first introduced to them, and when this design came into my head, I knew I had to make it. And happily, the author — who, I confess, also happens to be my husband — liked the design, too!

This design is available both as a patch on our website, and as a sticker via RedBubble.

StarkSome people might say that the last week in August is too early to start thinking about Halloween.  Clearly, these people have never made their own costume, a process which — if you’re me — usually starts on November 1 of the previous year.








Camp Crystal LakeSometimes, you have everything you need — the perfect dress, the perfect wig, the perfect coat, the perfect suit.  Your costume is only missing one thing — that final little touch that REALLY defines it.








SMart AshAnd that’s where I come in.  The patches here are a small sample of the ones I offer that will complete your costume or cosplay. Not to mention that we do custom work all the time. Need a patch or embroidery that’s simply impossible to find? Chances are, we can make it for you.

O CaptainO Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
                         But O heart! heart! heart!
                            O the bleeding drops of red,
                               Where on the deck my Captain lies,
                                  Fallen cold and dead.
Inspired by the 1891 poem by Walt Whitman, as well as by Robin Williams’ performance in “Dead Poets Society”, this design is available both as a patch, and as a sticker via RedBubble.

FantasticThe new season of Doctor Who begins this Sunday! I’m really looking forward to seeing what Peter Capaldi does with the role, and curious to see the new directions the show will take with this new Doctor. Are you all as excited as I am?








Dont BlinkTo celebrate, I thought I’d highlight a few of the patches we’ve made inspired by Doctor Who.  All of these (as well as bags and scarves!) can be found in the Doctor Who section of our webstore.

BagOfHoldingTablet1Okay, technically not the newest of new items, since we did carry the small size of these a few years ago. But somehow they fell off our list, and we’re reintroducing them now — in both small messenger bag size, and in tablet size.

While it’s true that this bag doesn’t actually open a portal to another dimension, suitable for holding all your worldly possessions, it is surprisingly roomy on the inside. This bag is made of a sturdy tan cotton canvas, embroidered in black with the words “Bag of Holding” in a gaming-inspired font.
