My submission for AUREA’s Aros Create Pride event (which you can read about here). This is a few of my favorite patches I’ve embroidered. I posted this on tumblr (link here) but am crossposting it here as another place where people could potentially leave comments.
Patch 1: Aroace Arrow through Inverted Spade-heart
This patch uses the aroace flag I made (seen here). It utilizes a spade, which is an aroace symbol, which I’ve inverted so it looks somewhat like a heart, which is being pierced by the arrow. (I’ve previously shared this patch in this post).
Patch 2: Aromatic Aromantic
This one has a chemistry pun; so, the basic type of aromatic molecules is a 6-carbon ring with 3 double bonds, and the simplistic way of depicting this is a hexagon with a circle inside of it. This patch has the hexagon with a circle aromatic symbol in gold. In between the hexagon and the circle is the aro pride flag. I thought inside the circle looked plain so I added a bow and arrow inside of it in silver because of Artemis. Then across the top is the word “Aromantic”, mostly in white but the “n” is green such that reading just the white letters would say “Aromatic”, thus it can be read as “Aromatic Aromantic”. (I’ve previously posted a tutorial of this patch here).
Patch 3: Demiplatonic apl-apple
This one plays on the pun where aplatonic is shortened to apl, thus apl apple. I added a triangle to the aplatonic flag to make it demiplatonic, which is how I specifically identify. (I’ve previously posted a tutorial of this patch here).
