...how to sew on all those patches...

...a few people have asked how I sew on all of Scout's emblems, badges and patches...

...it's really not too difficult...start by pinning your badge in place...you don't want it to move around while you sew and be all crooked in the end...

...the hardest thing most people find is that the patches are so thick and tough to get a needle through...so I don't even try that...

...I just stitch through the shirt and then through the back of a few of the shiny border stitches on the badge...and then pull it nice and snug...

...and there you have it...another badge for another while...they almost all have to come off and be replaced at some point...

  2. Awesome! I needed this. My husband has some Coast Guard patches (I think there must be a technical name....insignia?!) that he needs me to sew on. Thanks!

  3. Ooh, thanks for the tips on this. I have been ironing on my daughter's Daisy patches (she's a Girl Scout) but I would rather sew on at least the fun ones and troop insignia ones, so that I can pick them off and put them on her Brownie uniform next year.
