I have a customer who comes to me every year to make him a patch for his Fantasy Football team.  Every year, it’s something wildly different from the year before, and every year it’s one of the pieces I’m most proud of. So this post is nothing but a coollection of those patches, because I simply want to share them.

Interested in having some custom work done? Feel free to contact me for details!

autumncemeteryrbIt’s an experiment day today for new item! I took this photograph recently, and loved the way it came out. And, you know, my friends on Facebook seemed to like it, too. So I thought I’d try putting my first photograph up on Redbubble to see if you all like it, too!

vhornsHalloween is only 10 days away, so here is a photo of me dressing a bit gothy for the occasion, and wearing horns to work at Harvard University. I’m not sure exactly what year this was, but I’m going to guess somewhere around ten years ago!

I’m not going to lie…I kind of wish I still had that jacket, and have no idea when or how it left my closet.

Spending the month at the Connecticut Renaissance FaireConnecticut Renaissance Faire hanging out with Shakespeare Approves has made the choice of themes for this Thursday an easy one!

Though She Be LittleThough She Be But Little, She Is Fierce Patch

O, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school;
And though she be but little, she is fierce.

This patch is easily our best selling Shakespeare design. People either seem to identify with the quote, or else they know somebody it embodies perfectly!

This sew-on patch is stitched in dark brown thread on unbleached cotton canvas and measures 3″ in diameter.

henryvtablet4Henry V Tablet Messenger Bag

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry, ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’ 

The bag depicts a minimalist version of Tom Hiddleston’s Henry V, as portrayed in “The Hollow Crown”, and is stitched on off white cotton canvas with contrasting black strapping.

I love this design so much that this is actually my own laptop bag shown here. (My laptop is a Surface Pro 3, so it’s pretty small and fits perfectly in the tablet bags I make!)

Exit1Exit, Pursued by a Bear Bookmark

Possibly the best stage direction ever written comes from Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale”. In Act II, Scene iii, the direction simply reads, “Exit, pursued by a bear”.

This bookmark is embroidered in dark brown thread on off white cotton canvas.

The great thing about our embroidered bookmarks — besides just being awesome bookmarks — is that are still fully funcional as sew-on patches, too! Use it to hold your place in your favorite novel, or sew it on a bag or jacket to show your literary loves to the world.

If you’re a lover of the Bard, head on over to the Shakespeare section of our website! Don’t see your favorite quote? Shoot us a message and let us know!

I had intended to bring you guys one new product or design every week. It really was my intention! But lately, between shows and the large number of custom orders I’ve been getting, I have simply fallen behind. And this week, I find myself without anything new to share with you.

So instead, please enjoy these pictures from the Connecticut Renaissance Faire Time Travelers Weekend! We’re still open for two more weeks, so if you’re anywhere near North Haven, CT, please come and visit!
