FS: "Solvitas Perambulum" sew-on patches on 09/17/2013 12:25:25 MDT Print View

I know that sewing a patch onto a pack isn't UL, but I've always liked the latin phrase solvitas perambulum, which translated loosely means "solve it while walking". Theoretically at least, it was a Roman phrase meant to convey the idea that exercise can stimulate good or clear thought. Regardless of how historically accurate the phrase may be, I've long considered it a personal creed or aspiration. So I had a small patch (3/4 inch x 5 inches) made which looks like this:


However, the smallest quantity I could have made was 50, so I have 49 or so left if anyone wants one. If you're interested, paypal (as a gift) me (mcdcrook@gmail) a few bucks and I'll send you one. Suggested donation is between $3-$10, whatever you feel it's worth to you. If you don't do paypal, you can mail me a check. PM me for my address.

Wicked cool! Can I iron it on? I'm not handy with a needle.

Sorry, these are sew-on only. It sounds a bit ridiculous, but I opted for no glue on the backs to save weight.

Max: search "fabric glue" ... singer brand claims to work with most fabrics, including nylon

Crook, definitely not ridiculous. I cut the tags off my crazy old-school fleeces that weigh twice as much as an R1. Ultralight...?

Like those a lot, but hard pressed to think of anything to sew it onto. A decal, however...

Great Idea but... on 09/26/2013 07:08:54 MDT Print View

I think you should have made a bumper sticker instead. I'd like to put one on my Hummer. HA! just kidding...
