Great embroidery on your badge! I am working on my quilting badges. Have been so busy I haven't been able to get on this thread in a long time.

I keep mentioning my elderly neighbor. We were out picking some green beans and making a trellis for our cucumbers. Well.. I should say I was picking, and I made her the official bowl holder, who gets to sit and watch. I swear I thought I'd never see the end of those green beans, not that my stomach is complaining.
Anyway, she gave me permission to take a picture of her and our pickings.

An idea for those who don't want to permanently embroider their Henrietta badge to anything.

My town is in the middle of it's county fair and I wanted to wear my Sisterhood badge.
1. I embroidered a badge, leaving about 1/2" seam allowance. Then I ironed the seam allowance behind the badge. I chose 2 colors of rickrack, so I sewed them together BEFORE I attached it (using invisible stitch).
2. I cut a piece of rigid plastic (recycled placemat) and punched 2 holes on the top and bottom (for safety pins). Then cut 2 layers of recycled cotton batting. I placed the batting and plastic inside the back, and secured it by using a gathering stitch and tying it tight.
3. Lastly I used tacky glue and put some under the seam allowance and rickrack. Then I placed it on wax paper, put a roll of blue painters tape on top of the rickrack (it's just the right size!), and stacking books on top so it drys flat.
4. Then I just put in the safety pin. You might be wondering why did I punch 4 holes if I'm only using 2? That's for another safety pin! Incase you need to really secure your patch, such as on a bag or backpack.

Cyrie,
Your Sisterhood badge looks wonderful! I did something similar with mine, only it's more of a "Scottish" themed look.

Pixidustdevil, that looks great! I'm brand new to embroidery and I'be been a bit too intimidated to start making my badges. Thank you for sharing, it's really given me some motivation to try my hand at embroidery again!

Thanks!

BellaSticks- If you're new to embroidery; I recommend getting a lamented guide like this:

They sell them just about anywhere that sells embroidery thread.

For my badges; I use only 2 strands of floss (1 strand if it's tiny), and use mainly 'back stitches' and 'French knots'.

I thought I would share my badge display idea. I have been trying to come up with a way that I could display my badges but still be able to easily access them to add levels easily. I decided to use a bulletin board:

That's a good idea.
I've just been putting mine on a big piece of cloth. I plant to quilt them together in a honeycomb wall quilt.

You are all inspiring me to get on and start embroidering mine. I seem to have so many things on the go, but perhaps it would be a great fall evening project.

Pixiedustdevil, what a clever idea to do them all on one piece of fabric! I can't wait to see the quilt, it will be beautiful. :)

Earned my expert Rootin' Tootin" badge. It was a bit touch and go on some of my root crops at first this year. Thought my potatoes and parsnips weren't going to do anything, but they did! My carrots are beautiful!

Now I need to look at what I need to work on next!

Sarah,
I like your display. I had intended to make a mini quilt with mine, but that hasn't happened yet. Not sure about it either now if I keep working on new badges to add to it. And I don't want to sew them to a bag or piece of clothing.
Hmmmmm . . . what to do?
