Vintage 1940s - 50s leather elbow (or knee) patches for men and boys clothing, for disguising mended shirts, sweaters, jackets or pants, or preventing the worn spots to begin with!
These are 7 5/8" x 5 1/4", knee sized for little boys, elbows for big boys, mens shirts, knits and tweed jackets, or womens outerwear or work wear. These add a touch of luxury to hunting or fishing gear, or a professional look to handmade flannel shirts, hand-knit sweaters etc..
They're buttery soft sueded leather, light and flexible, yet very strong. A regular needle and thread should sew through these fine with the aid of a thimble, or any sewing machine set to fit the holes (you won't need a sewing machine made for leather.)
