Adapt Or Die Patch
The much maligned Ibis.
Hated for their rubbish oriented scavenging behaviour and adored as a symbol of Brisbane’s trashy charm. Despite some people’s disgust they are a fantastic example of an animal that has had to change dramatically to survive humans and totally nailed it. We’ve destroyed and taken over their natural wetland habitats, so as recently as the 1970’s they migrated into urban areas and took up dumpster diving. If you think the stains on their naturally white feathers are gross, remember, that’s our fault!

My pins and patches are made from my own drawings. Sketches in the sketchbook turned into something much more.

Application instructions (also included with the posted patch)
Test the garment first to ensure the high temperature will not damage the fabric. This is especially pertinent for synthetics such as nylon. High temperatures for a prolonged period of time may distort and damage both the appearance of the badge and garment surface.
- Set iron or heat-press to approx. 180 (C)
- Apply pressure to garment to warm the area prior to badge application
- Place badge on garment for application
- Cover the badge with a thin layer of fabric (such as a pillow case)
- Apply pressure for approx. 15-20 seconds. Pressure is the key to getting good adherence.
