These limited-edition, handmade MENDER patches are blockprinted onto cotton and poly-cotton fabric scraps (upcycled bedsheets) by Addie Best in Maine, U.S.A. Each patch is one-of-a-kind.
Sew a patch onto your clothes, bag or face mask and proudly proclaim your mendy superpower to the world, or make a badge to wear when volunteering at your next community-repair session.
Available in four colours, each patch measures approximately 16 x 7cm, and the MENDER print is 11 x 4cm. Patch edges have been left raw; press edges under before you stitch to prevent fraying or keep them raw for a punk-inspired look.
This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
