I’ve started embroidering these patches for my backpack for all the different airports I’ve visited. Patches can be hard to find when traveling, but now I can make my own to show off where I’ve been. My friend Peter came up with this idea long ago. I’ve made some of them available for sale in my Etsy shop, plus I’ll take custom orders for your airport code of choice. – Link.
