Patches On Swiss Army Blankets

Here's a little fatherhood post for you that may have been missing that from me over the past, oh I dunno.  Year maybe?

A while back I picked up these replica Swiss Army Blankets from Amazon.  I liked the wool vibe and gave the room a bit of an outdoorsy feel.  The best part is these were not super expensive.  Which isn't always the case when talking about wool blankets.

Over the past few years our family has been collecting these iron-on-patches from different trips, friends or occasions.  We hadn't really come up with a great idea for how to display them or in a way in which we'd have the opportunity to enjoy them for years and years.

I'd come up with the idea of putting them on the wool blankets.  Naturally my wife wasn't super sold on the idea, so I had to take matters into my own hands and iron them on myself.  
I liked the offset vibe of the patches giving it a bit of an off-center vibe and channeling a militaristic or Boy Scout style aesthetic.

Now here's to hoping they don't rip off during the night.
