ROUTE 666 "Straight to Hell" BACK PATCH
There were 15 of these patches made back in 1969 for a
run. Chicago to Santa Monica on old Route 66. The
run never came together....... And I still haven't done all of
it, maybe someday. The patch is 9"x 9" and in pristine
condition. It is all hand made, no computer or pin machine was
used. It was done freehand from a paper pattern.
Really beautiful work. It is appliqué construction on real
wool patch felt, NOT POLYFELT. It should last nearly forever.
I know a couple of these were sewn on leather jackets and are still there
30 years later. I have had patch sealer applied to the back just to be
sure. The Ford Fairlane style script "Straight to Hell" on the
bottom is done in silver metallic sparkle thread. This is a very
collectable custom patch or it will look very cool on your black leather
jacket or Levi cut-off.........
HELMET LAWS ARE TYRANNY PATCH from 1991
I did this patch when the helmet nazis were about to take
California..........It didn't help.... At least here in Florida we have
finally repealed that crap after nearly forever! So there is hope. You
just have to keep at it. I still wear this patch even though we no longer
have a helmet law. Gone, but not forgotten. Those who insist on stealing
our freedom will return, that's for sure! The patch is 2"x 6" on black
twill with red embroidered letters. The edge is merrowed in black and
patch sealer applied to the back to stabilize it.
