IAW guidance on page 33 of this document, paragraph (G), indicates procedures for procuring "badges and insignia" as an example of an assigned commodity. Patches for use by participants (pilots) during an official function such as an Air Show would be allowed. However, purchasing patches to give to local dignitaries or visitors is not allowed.
