Vintage-Patch Giveaway

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Readers, you may recall this previous blog post in which I highlighted a hole in my jumper, and various options of how to fix it.

Whilst there are many DIY options to fix a holey clothing piece, UK based business Vintage-Patch offer an easy solution; iron on cotton print elbow, knee and other types of patches and appliques, ideal for adding an unusual accent to a remodelled garment or knitwear.


A clever, quick fix solution to holey clothes, or just to add a bit of interest to your boring pieces.  Vintage-Patch patches are very easy to apply, simply iron on, although additional hand / machine stitching would be recommended for machine washable clothing.



Jnr RF has a pair of jeans that fit him so well, but, as with most 4yr old boys that climb and fall over, his jeans have finally given way at the knee.


I've used a Vintage-Patch skull and crossbones kid sized patch to iron onto the holey knee, and there we go, a pair of no-longer-holey jeans, with a funky new look.





The additional little star patch included in the pack, is just the right size to cover up the hole in my cardigan; the cardigan that started the holey clothing conversation!


With pretty floral ovals, heart patches and retro prints, in both child and adult sizing, there are many options to adorn a sweater elbow, jeans, or leggings knees.


I have three patch sets (one matching pair in a set) to giveaway to three Recycled Fashion readers.

Here are the three patch colour sets to choose from:

 (Red patches are heart shaped)

To enter the competition, simply leave a comment below with your preference of colour, and where you'd apply your patch.  Also pop on over to Vintage Patch on facebook to 'like' their page.  The giveaway is open to worldwide readers, and will be live for two weeks.  Winners will be drawn on Friday 30th November. 

*UPDATE* Giveaway now over, winners announced here.

I love patchwork and needless to say, I include fabric patches in that category;)). I love the red heart-shaped patch - my heart-shaped sunnies need loving friends:). I would apply them like upper-arm tattoos on a t-shirt. Liking their FB page too and thank you for running this awesome giveaway!

I love elbow patches. I have a sweater with them, I call it my "old man" sweater. It goes well with my glasses.

I like the blue floral and I'd put them on some leggings - love that look! Thanks for the chance to win.

I love all the designs but the first one probably fits my favourite pink jeans (by Cheap Monday, oh got I love the pair!!). They would be wonderful if I want to make them a pair of patchwork jeans which I always adore but think I can upcycle from what I have. Thank you Erica!

I love the blue floral patch -I used to wear them a lot at school because my mum was sick of buying new things I always ripped - so I went for sparkly stars mostly. I have no idea why!

i love the blue patches!!! I could stitch it to almost any of my long sleeve shirts or sweaters or even my denim jacket! I'd love to have a set!

I love the creamy florals! :D would love to stick them to my leggings like the last picture posted above! its simply toooo cute!

I love the blue one most and would possibly turn them into several smaller patches to use on my slightly un-coordinated 7 year old's leggings. They would look so much cooler than the home-made patches from her old t-shirts, and far more sturdy.

These are so cute. If I won, I'd choose the navy blue floral. Great giveaway!

I though I would never be a fan of patches until I read this post of yours. They are cool and adorable. Thanks a lot for your easy-to-follow suggestions.
