She can't stand to have holes in her clothes, so I try to at least make the patches fun. She will wear the pants if they have fun patches. Hmmm....I wonder how long that will last? Maybe by the time she hates patches she will stop crawling around on the floor all day?

The corduroys on the right have patches with silver glittery fabric paint. This makes the patches extra stiff. Hopefully that means they will be extra sturdy.
The cords in the middle wound up being my favorites. I've had this Zodiac fabric for ages and haven't had a clue what to do with it. Blockette is a Virgo so I used that one for her patch.
I think these might be Blockette's favorites too. Blockette got a book on constellations for Christmas. Already she can find Orion all by herself in the night sky! So we got to talking about the Zodiac constellations and how her birthday fell into the Virgo time frame, and I was under Leo the Lion.
Then she asked me, "But what is a Virgo?" Not thinking anything of it, I replied, "Virgo is the virgin." I mean we talk about how Mary was a virgin, so I wasn't expecting the follow up question of, "But what's a virgin?" Oh man. Talk about quick thinking. I settled on the explanation of a "young lady who has never tried to make babies." She was satisfied with that. Whew!
