ScooterPatch.com Woven Scooter Rally Patches

Scooterpatch.com (in the bright orange banner under our own banner) has introduced a new kind of patch for this scooter rally season. Now you can choose from embroidered or woven patches. What’s the difference? Embroidered patches are sewn of course. And it’s the thread gives the images on patches a nice 3D quality. But you are limited to how small you can make lettering and other details.

Woven patches are flat and are made on an electronic loom so a much finer thread can be used which lets you do much smaller details like 1/8″ tall lettering or even smaller. Take a look at the samples above. Then think of the brand and size labels in your clothing. Now you’ve got the idea.

Jeff Bass, owner of scooterpatch.com, describes it this way: “Embroidery is analog and woven is digital.”

Minnie the modette.

Minnie Mouse Disney Bow-tique Scooter Vespa Puzzle Mickey Clubhouse

Not only is she clearly a mod but she has a pet cat which is a very progressive pet for a mouse to have … don’t you think?

The first photo shows Minnie on a remote control scooter, the second photo shows a jigsaw puzzle with her beau Mickey and the third is Minnie on a smaller scooter toy with lots of accessories and said cat.

The RC scooter seems to be only available in Europe while the puzzle falls into the category of “rare swag” as I didn’t find a good online source for it. Try searching “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Scooter 35pc Jigsaw Puzzle.” The smaller toy scooter is more widely available.

Love the name of Minnie’s line of toys — “Bow-tique” !
