Story of Easy Peasy Patches
Easy Peasy Patches are my practical and entertaining solution to the age old problem of children wearing out their clothing before outgrowing them. Easy Peasy Patches is the result of having developed such a great solution that I wanted to share it. The inspiration for creating Easy Peasy Patches came from my three young children who continually ripped open the knees of their pants. I wanted an easy way to mend their clothing. I also wanted something FUN my kids would WANT to wear. Easy Peasy Patches were created through a lot of experimentation. It took many attempts to create a Patch that would survive seventy-five cycles of the washing machine and hold up to my childrens™ boisterous play. Testing™ involved having the kids wear hockey pads under the patched pants while sliding up and down the driveway on their knees!
In June 2010, I named my patches "Scabs" and launched them under the name Grab A Scab Inc.. The immediate reaction to Scabs from kids and parents alike was fantastic! My initial customer feedback allowed me to make improvements to Scabs in size, fabric and design. In 2012, Grab A Scab Inc. caught the attention of JDNA, a large North American distributor. JDNA purchased Grab A Scab Inc. and ran the business from Jan 2012 until June 2013. The business arrangement did not work out as expected and in June 2013, I re-aquired Grab A Scab Inc. In order to make the product more appealing to craft and apparel retailers, I decided to rebrand the company from Grab A Scab™ to Easy Peasy Patches™
I received a few of these patches to check out for myself and am honestly impressed. I can do basic sewing, but that`s as far as it goes. I can iron, but pulling out the ironing board is a hassle. The Easy Peasy Patches is the perfect no-sew solution for parents. These are just as nice as other patches, but to use them is a lot simpler. You peel the back off, apply it to the clothing you want to attach it to, place in the dryer for 10 minutes and that`s it! Just don`t wash that article of clothing for at least 24 hours to ensure it sets in place properly.
I tried this for my daughter and the patches surprisingly stuck without any problems. They looked just as nice as a new store-bought piece of clothing, but no sewing or ironing was required. Plus the patches actually stayed in place while my 7 year old ran crazy and just acted like a typical 7 years old. The patches are well made and it`s obvious quality materials were used in it`s making. I`m impressed and as a mom I love these things! I can honestly recommend them. There are tons of designs to choose from and there`s even an option for a custom patch for those interested!
