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).
Hey, that's a wonderfull work you deed here. Even more so since you posted tutorials to allow others to reproduce it, spreading the pride further ! I like the 3 of them, but as a nerd, my favourite is of course the aroma(n)tic one. I also like the last one because there is very little apl pride ideas that I know (beside flags, of course), so this one is a great one too. This is great inspiration for tee shirt designs, so thank you !
I really love the symbolism and attention to detail you have put in this work! I love the idea of inverting the spade. It makes me think more about the aromanticism embedded in the spade symbol, which is really cool! I might need to take a page out of your book and embroider myself some patches Thanks for sharing!!
Hi! These are amazing, I love them! I really like the puns and the symbolism, and the cool designs you’ve created from them. My favourite also has to be the aromatic aromantic one. I love chemistry and I think this is such a cool idea! I also love how you’ve designed your own flags for specific identities that don’t get a lot of representation. It’s great to finally see an aesthetically pleasing aroace flag, and also a demiplatonic flag! Thank you for sharing these and I hope you had a good pride month!😊💚
